MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Some of the coldest air of the season has settled into Minnesota.

The bottom dropped out of readings in the northern region of the state Thursday. The community of Embarrass reported a temperature of 41 below zero. That’s without the wind chill factor. Forecasters say that’s the lowest recorded temperature in northern Minnesota this winter.

It was 31 below in Ely and Fosston and 28 below at Bemidji.

The National Weather Service issued a wind chill advisory for parts of Minnesota.
