We just experienced the largest temperature rise within 3 days since 1951 (February 9-11). From January 31 through February 2 2019, the temperature rose 68°F at Rochester MN and 73°F at La Crosse, WI. Both of these were among the 4 largest temperature rises within 72 hours.
Curious what the wind chill is where you are? Use this chart to calculate it! You can also tell how long it would take frostbite to occur. With wind chills in the -20 to -30 range already in NE IA and SE MN, frostbite could occur in 30 minutes.
