Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - The extreme cold is to blame for the temporary closure of a handful of outdoor Northland businesses, and attractions, Sunday

Dangerous wind chill temperatures forced Spirit Mountain, in Duluth, to close the ski resort for the day with tentative plans to resume operations Monday within limited holiday hours.

The Bentleyville "Tour of Lights" was also closed tonight due to the frigid weather conditions. Bentleyville plans on reopening tomorrow at 5 PM, if the weather improves.

The Bayfront skating rink and Family Center was also closed, Sunday, due to the extreme cold weather.

They say they'll reopen when conditions improve.

The National Weather Service had issued a wind chill warning for Northeastern Minnesota Sunday, with chances of wind chills dropping to 40 or 50 below.

Exposed flesh in that kind of biting cold could freeze in a matter of minutes.
