As a result, bliz- zard warnings and winter storm warnings were issued for parts of southern, western, and central Minnesota. In addition, a winter weather advisory was posted for most of the rest of the area. As the front pushed through, the temperatures also plummeted by Monday and will continue for much of the week. Conditions did improve by late Monday night into Tuesday, but the cold weather will settle in for much of the week. We could see a few flurries by Wednesday and some light snow is possible by Sunday as a warm- front arrives. This should help to bring temperatures back into the low- to mid-20s by Sunday. Weather history: On this date in 1965, official records show that "a snowstorm dumps 15 inches of snow at Duluth over two days." Weather fact: Polar vortex: A circumpolar wind circulation which "isolates theAntarctic con- tinent during the cold Southern Hemisphere winter, heightening ozone depletion."
