Sub-zero temperatures cause trouble across metro

Posted: Updated:

The cold snap is causing all kinds of problems -- from stalled cars to ruptured pipes, even false alarms of fire.

Watch the video for more information.

AAA reported helping 1,200 stalled drivers in Hennepin County alone on Monday, but those numbers are expected to climb.

The National Weather Service says Monday's high temperature at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport only reached 2 below zero. That breaks a 4-year-old record of continuous high temperatures at or above zero at the airport.

Forecasters say lows Monday night will range from 20 to 30 below in northern Minnesota to 10 to 20 below in the south.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
