Community Below zero is coming this week Mark Anthony Monday&apos;s sunrise, Dec. 2: Metetrologist 7:46 a.m. Monday's sunset: 4:38 p.m. Temperatures over the week- end were right on track for this time of the year. We started off the month of December on Sunday with daytime high temperatures near average for early December. For example, Alexandria hit 27 degrees on Sunday for the day- time high temperature. Some other temperatures on Sun- day were: Morris topped out at 32 degrees, Kimball rose to 30 degrees, Elbow Lake warmed to 28 degrees, Crosby reported 25 degrees, Menahga reached 23 degrees, and Sebeka was a cooler 21 degrees. Temperatures remained mild on Tuesday and Wednesday as a storm system pushed across Min- nesota. Winter storm watches and warnings were posted for much of Minnesota on Monday night and Tuesday as enough snowfall and winds created difficult driving conditions at times. Arctic air will start to move into The Upper Midwest for the mid- week and stay with us through the weekend. Daytime high tempera- tures will drop into the single dig- its above and below zero. Over- night low temperatures will drop to near 20 below zero by Thursday and Friday morning. In addition, wind chill values will fall to 30 to 40 degrees below zero at that time on Thursday and Friday. Fairly stronl winds will cause those dangerois wind-chill values, but also red,Ice visibility in open areas. Of course, make sure you have your winter survival kits with you just in case you breakdown on the highways. Also, for the latest road condi- tions call 511, orgo to www.511mn. org. Be safe and stay warm. Weather history: On this date in 1886 "Minneapolis hits a record-setting 15 degrees below zero." Weather fact: Frostbite is caused by extreme cold that can damage the skin. An hour of expo- sure at 20 degrees Fahrenheit is all it takes to cause frostbite. Even colder temperatures, "or exacer- bating factors such as moisture or wind, will increase the likelihood of frostbite setting in and causing pain and discomfort" and even kill skin tissue.

Kimball police chief Jim Frilstad helped to install the city's Christmas lighted dei:orations on Main Street with Ed Borman driving the city's tractor. Now that there's snow, it's beginning to look more Christmassy everywhere. With frigid temps on their way, many may start to dream of spring already. Staffphoto by Jean Doran Matua.
