The cold air that just doesn't want to stop this winter will continue to grip Minneapolis through at least Tuesday.
It's been the coldest winter in more than 30 years in terms of subzero temperatures, according to the National Weather Service in Minneapolis. The city's airport had 40 days of subzero temperatures as of Sunday; the last time that happened was in the winter of 1981-82 when there were 45 subzero days.
Bitter temperatures will be the rule early this week, with highs in the single digits. Overnight lows will drop below zero. Temperatures will be as much as 20 degrees below normal for this time of year.
