Throw an extra layer on before stepping outside.

A bitter rush of cold wind will welcome folks to the new week, prompting the National Weather Service (NWS) in Duluth to issue a wind chill advisory from 3-10 a.m. Monday.

Temperatures will dip to about 12 below zero, but will feel as cold as 40 below, the NWS says.

"(The cold spike) is a little early," said Kevin Kraujalis, meteorologist with the NWS.

The bitter cold usually waits another week or two before hitting the area, he said.

Last year at this time, temperatures were in the upper 20s and there was only an inch of snow on the ground. That quickly changed with a major snowstorm that left 18 inches of snow on the ground by Dec. 5. Two days later, temperatures dipped to 18 below, without the windchill.

This year's early burst of cold air won't last long. The region will start warming up into the low 20s Tuesday and will likely be in the 30s by the weekend, the NWS says.

"It will be short lived. Just a quick shot of cold air and then moderate temperatures next week," Kraujalis said.
