Geeze, that nearly 40 degree high on Sunday was nice while it lasted! Another blob of cold air rotating around the polar vortex sends the latest arctic wave into Minnesota. Those that plan on commuting to work will need to layer up pretty much all week. Luckily, the cold eases up come the weekend for the 2nd Get Phat with Pat race at the River Bottoms.

For those that will be commuting by bike this week, take extra care to cover up. With record cold and wind chill as low as -65, exposed skin can get frostbitten in 5-10 minutes.
Luckily, this extreme cold will be rather short lived. Conditions will gradually get warmer with each passing day and by the weekend, we'll be back to freezing!
Summer brings warm afternoons perfect for biking, but the summer heat and humidity can also spark thunderstorms and severe weather. Be prepared for any type of adverse weather headed your way with Aeris Pulse.
