Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - These cold temps are only going to intensify over the next few days.
It's a question you've probably heard time and time again.
John Nelson/Lives in Fargo: "Why do you live here? I don't know, laughing."
And on days like today and into tomorrow, it might be a question we ask ourselves for good measure.
Especially after a heat wave like yesterday.
"Super nice, but as the pendulum swings, the weather has to change too."
Temps dipped below 20 degrees today.
But winds whipped up fast...making it hard to find anyone to talk about the weather.
Except for these guys, bundled up under an outdoor heater.
Rick/Lives in Fargo: "It's called Fargo weather."
Five years ago Rick moved back to Fargo from Arizona.
But he knows how dangerous our wind chills can get.
Rick: "Tomorrow Monday and Tuesday is supposed to be real cold."
Aaron White/WDAY Meteorologist: "Again, a blizzard warning remains in effect for all the counties shaded in orange until nine p.m. For the North."
All day WDAY meteorologist Aaron White has been warning the valley of these conditions.
But tomorrow, it's strictly advised to stay inside.
White: "If you go outside and have any exposed skin, frostbite time are very very quick. 5-10 minutes."
To put it in perspective 24 hours from now, by the time I’m done saying this, my skin will have been frozen.
To give you another idea of just how dangerous our winter weather will be for the next few days, take a look at this ship, stuck in Antarctica.
Where 74 scientists are stranded, battling 40 mile an hour winds.
That's compared to the gusts we'll be feeling all night.
Nelson: "I'm staying in bed."
Rick: "I’m going to stay inside, it's Sunday."
And who's to blame them.
Nelson: "Expect the unexpected I guess. Or expect cold."
After all, this is North Dakota.
When we see these stinging temps make sure to cover all exposed skin, if you're heading outside.
