Weather Summary for Minnesota
National Weather Service Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
420 AM CDT Wed Oct 11 2017

Light winds and cool high pressure over the region this morning is
contributing to temperatures plummeting to the mid 20s up north and
the 30s in central and southern portions of the state. Aside from
clouds over far southeastern Minnesota, the bulk of the state is
mainly clear. This is resulting in frost formation over much of the

High pressure over the state this morning will shift east during the
day today, allowing clouds to return from the south. Highs will
remain in the 50s statewide. A weak upper level wave moving across
the area tonight may produce drizzle and light rain showers over far
eastern portions of the state after midnight. Otherwise, dry and
cloudy conditions are expected with much warmer lows in the middle
40s to lower 50s.

The warming trend will continue through tomorrow as highs climb to
the 60s statewide. However, an approaching cold front will push
through the state Thursday night into Friday morning, bringing
scattered rain showers to mainly southeastern portions of the state
Friday. Highs on Friday will drop to middle 50s to lower 60s.

The next serious threat of more widespread rain, and even some snow
showers up north, will arrive for the weekend as another storm
system takes shape over the upper Midwest. Temperatures will drop
back down to near normal over the weekend.
