The weather from January 5-9th brought back flashbacks of the Arctic Blast of January 5-7, 2014. While not quite the magnitude of cold as the episode in January 2014, this cold outbreak had its moments. The coldest wind chill temperature at the Twin Cities International Airport for the 2015 cold snap was on January 7 with -34 degrees at 9am with an air temperature of -8 degrees F and a northwest wind blowing at 23 mph. The coldest in the state was -54 degrees at Grand Marais with an air temperature of -24 and a wind of 21mph. This was the first real test of the new school cancellation policies in the Twin Cites metro area with many schools closing and others staying open. The Twin Cities had a high temperature of -1 on January 7, the first below-zero high of the season.

The center of the high pressure associated with the cold air on the 7th was centered over eastern South Dakota, but was close enough for some very high barometric pressure readings in Minnesota. The highest pressure in the Twin Cities was 30.90 inches at 9am on January 7th. The record is 31.10 inches recorded on February 17th, 1989. The highest pressure found in Minnesota on January 7, 2015 was 31.00 inches at multiple locations in southwest parts of the state. The record for the highest pressure in the state is 31.17 inches at International Falls in another arctic outbreak of February 17, 1989.

Fast on the heels of the high pressure was a vigorous Alberta Clipper that brought blizzard conditions to northwest and southern Minnesota. Snow began in the Twin Cities during the morning hours of January 8th and tapered off in the afternoon. Strong winds moved in behind the snow and caused considerable blowing and drifting, even in the heart of the Twin Cities. The winds were gusting to 43 mph at 8pm on January 8th at the Twin Cities International Airport where 3 inches of snow fell with the clipper. Numerous traffic crashes were reported during the day and evening of January 8th.
