WEATHER SUMMARY FOR MINNESOTA

620 AM CST TUE DEC 6 2016
While a cold front pushes through the Great Lakes this morning, its
trailing low pressure center will shift east through northern
Minnesota today. Accumulating snow will be realized over much of
northern Minnesota today while strong winds develop over much of
western and central Minnesota in the wake of the cold front. These
elements will last through the day today, then diminish this evening
as much colder high pressure settles into the region. Except for
along and east of the I-35 corridor this morning, temperatures have
dropped into the 20s statewide and even into the upper teens in far
western Minnesota. Temperatures will then remain rather steady today
as arctic air surges into the state.
Temperatures will continue to drop tonight into Wednesday morning,
ranging from 10 to 20 degrees, with scattered snow showers up north.
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, lowest wind chill values
will drop to between zero and 10 degrees below zero from Wednesday
through the weekend with occasional showers, mainly up north.
