(Negative numbers mean amount of water needed, positive numbers mean excess water is present).   6 Air Quality Index is provided by Minnesota Polution Control Agency and is updated hourly between the hours of 6AM and Midnight.   9 Solar Index represents either an absolute scale of solar energy (W/m²) using the station’s recorded maximum or a percentage of computed theoretical solar maximum using the station’s location and time of day. These indices differ most when the sun is low on the horizon. The current scale is shown, and will toggle if it or the icon is clicked.   10 Historical average only to day 30 of just the month of January for this station since 2004.   11 Historical average rain this season to day 30 of January for this station since 2004.

Minnesota Random Weather Facts

WIND CHILL
Wind Chill - The wind chill temperature is what the temperature "feels like" to people and animals during cold weather. Wind chill is based on the rate of heat loss from exposed skin caused by wind and cold. As the wind increases, it draws heat from the body, driving down skin temperature and eventually the internal body temperature. Once temperatures drop below 10 F and the wind is gusting, conditions are ripe for cold-related illnesses. Below -5 F, any wind is a major factor in frostbite and hypothermia.
