WEATHER SUMMARY FOR MINNESOTA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TWIN CITIES/CHANHASSEN MN
405 AM CST THU FEB 23 2017
Skies slowly cleared from north to south across the state overnight.
Clouds still remained in the far south and portions of northern
Minnesota where more clouds were spilling southward across the
Canadian border. Where skies cleared, temperatures fell into the 20s
and lower 30s. Where the skies were cloudy, temperatures were in the
low to mid 30s. A brisk north wind continued overnight which allowed
for wind chill values to drop into the teens and 20s.
A major winter storm is expected to form across the Plains later
today, and move northeast toward the southern Great Lakes by
Saturday morning. A large area of snow will occur on the northwest
side of this storm system which will bring locally one foot of snow
in the far south and southeast part of the state by Saturday
morning. Snow is still expected across the rest of southern and east
central Minnesota, but the track of the storm system is further to
the southeast which led to amounts much lower around the Twin
Cities. Temperatures will be more seasonable this weekend with highs
in the 20s and 30s.
