630 AM CST SUN DEC 4 2016

A weak cold front will move across the state today through Monday
morning, and it brought accumulating snow to much of central and
eastern Minnesota overnight. Snowfall amounts ranged from 1 to 3
inches with little to no additional snowfall expected beyond
daybreak. Temperatures dropped to the upper 20s to lower 30s this
morning and will only rise to the middle 30s this afternoon.

Virtually no cooling is expected behind today`s cold front. In fact,
slightly warmer temperatures are expected on Monday despite plenty
of cloud cover. Lows tonight will drop into the 20s statewide
followed by Monday afternoon highs from the lower 30s up north to
the lower 40s near the Iowa border.

The forecast continues to look tame for the first half of next week
but will become much colder. A more potent but drier cold front
looks to swing through the Northern Plains and Minnesota Monday
night into Tuesday. Scattered areas of light snow are expected for
northern and eastern portions of the state, but little in the way of
accumulating snow. The more significant impact will be much colder
temperatures on the way, dropping temperatures day by day through
the week next week. Highs will drop into the teens by Wednesday with
lows in some portions plummeting into the single digits. With
breezier conditions expected for the latter half of the week, wind
chill values will drop to between zero and 10 degrees below zero
from Wednesday through the rest of the week.
