On Tuesday, Dec. 26 - the Boxing Day holiday in many other parts of the world - things got even colder.

Embarrass was the coldest reporting station in the Northland on Tuesday, with a low of 36 below zero. That follows the 29-below-zero reading the Embarrass weather spotter reported on Christmas morning.

In Cloquet, the low on Tuesday was 13 below zero, while the Duluth airport reported a morning low of 21 below.
