WEATHER SUMMARY FOR MINNESOTA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TWIN CITIES/CHANHASSEN MN
500 AM CDT SUN APR 23 2017
A cold front dropped south through the northern third of Minnesota
overnight, resulting in scattered sprinkles in the northland with
temperatures bottoming out close to the freezing mark. South of the
front, lows held in the lower to middle 40s.
The front will make little additional progress, resulting in a
strong gradient in temperatures from north to south across the
state. Highs near the international border will only hit the lower
40s while highs near the Iowa border will surge into the lower 70s.
Even highs only in the upper 30s are possible up north. Scattered
rain and snow showers are expected up north today.
The front will wobble over central portions of the state tonight
through tomorrow, keeping precipitation going up north tonight then
spreading over more of the state Monday as a low pressure center
arrives from the Dakotas. Mainly rain showers are expected but a
wintry mix is possible for northern portions. Lows tonight will
range from the upper 20s to middle 30s up north to the upper 30s to
upper 40s in central and southern portions. Highs Monday will again
have a large north to south spread, with highs around 40 expected
near the international border and highs close to 70 expected near
the Iowa border.
The unsettled weather pattern is expected to continue through much
of the coming week with highs trending below normal once again and
multiple periods where rain and snow showers can be expected for
much of the state.
