Weather Summary for Minnesota
National Weather Service Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
410 AM CST Wed Jan 10 2018

Very mild temperatures were across the state early this morning with
most readings near, or slightly above freezing. The normal lows for
January 10th is usually around zero north, to the single digits
south. The southerly winds has also brought areas of low clouds and
fog to eastern Minnesota overnight. Dense fog was even reported in
southeast Minnesota where visibilities were less than one quarter of
a mile.

These mild temperatures are the first signs that a strong storm
system was beginning to move out into the Plains. Southerly winds
ahead of this system will bring abundant moisture to fuel the
approaching storm system. By this evening, a sharp cold front will
move into northwest Minnesota, dropping temperatures into the single
digits, plus snow will develop. Ahead of this front, areas of
drizzle, freezing drizzle and snow will develop, becoming all snow
after midnight. Some areas could receive up to 6 inches of snow by
Thursday afternoon in south central, and southeast Minnesota where
currently a winter storm watch is in effect. This weekend will bring
very cold temperatures and a chance of snow.
