This isn't a travel question. You'd get better answers in the weather section.
Minneapolis is in the middle the continent, far from any major bodies of water that would moderate winter weather. That's one of the reasons why it has colder, snowier winters than say Seattle.
Also, the Gulf Stream brings warm air and water from the Caribbean to the British Isles.
That's the over simplified version of it.

Gulf stream helps to keep England a little warmer than it would otherwise be.

It is partly the Gulf Stream which is mild air flowing off the Atlantic Ocean from the South West and partly Climate Xhange. London has experienced severely cold and snowy winters in the past and the north of England and Scotlands can still experience large amounts of snow in the winter

The jet stream keeps it warm.
