WEATHER SUMMARY FOR MINNESOTA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TWIN CITIES/CHANHASSEN MN
451 AM CDT SAT MAR 21 2015

MUCH COLDER AIR HAS FOUND ITS WAY INTO THE STATE THIS MORNING IN THE
WAKE OF A COLD FRONT THAT MOVED THROUGH YESTERDAY. AS WE START THIS
SATURDAY...ALL BUT THE SOUTHEAST CORNER OF THE STATE IS BELOW
FREEZING...WITH SOME READINGS IN THE SINGLE DIGITS ABOVE ZERO ALONG
THE CANADIAN BORDER. TODAY...WE WILL SEE CLOUDS INCREASE DURING THE
AFTERNOON WITH HIGHS REMAINING IN THE 20S ACROSS THE NORTH...WITH
SUNNIER SKIES ALLOWING LOCATIONS ON THE BUFFALO RIDGE IN THE
SOUTHWEST TO PUSH UP TO NEAR 50.

SUNDAY WILL SEE PRECIP BLOSSOM ACROSS THE STATE IN THE AFTERNOON
FROM AROUND FARGO DOWN TOWARD LA CROSSE. THE KICKER HERE THOUGH IS
THAT THIS PRECIPITATION WILL LIKELY FALL AS SNOW...AND HEAVY AT
TIMES AT THAT...WITH 1 TO 4 INCHES OF SNOW LIKELY FROM FARGO DOWN
THOUGH THE TWIN CITIES AND ROCHESTER. ALL BUT THE NORTH WILL SEE A
BRIEF BREAK FROM THE PRECIPITATION ON MONDAY...BEFORE WIDESPREAD
PRECIPITATION MOVES ACROSS THE STATE TUESDAY INTO WEDNESDAY. THIS
PRECIPITATION WILL BE RAIN ON TUESDAY...BUT WILL SWITCH OVER TO SOME
SNOW ACROSS THE NORTH FOR WEDNESDAY.

OF COURSE WITH ALL OF THIS TALK ABOUT SNOW MEANS TEMPERATURES WILL
BE BELOW NORMAL NEXT WEEK...WITH HIGHS MAINLY REMAINING MIRED IN THE
30S AND 40S UNTIL NEXT WEEKEND.
