UNDATED (LEARFIELD) – It may be August, but you’re being warned.

“Shake, shiver and shovel,” said Peter Geiger, spokesman for the Farmers’ Almanac. He notes that Minnesota is being designated as the hibernation zone.

“It sounds horrible,” added Geiger. “We do talk about some snows in the middle of October, November, more significant snow at the end of November, we talked about some snow in early December.”

When it comes to subzero temperatures, January is when we can expect the arctic blast to blanket the state.
