415 AM CDT SUN MAR 19 2017
Very mild air was surging northward across the Upper Midwest early
this morning in response to a storm system over the Northern Plains.
Southerly winds kept temperatures from dropping below freezing in
southwest Minnesota. The rest of the state continued to see
southerly winds, but temperatures managed to fall below freezing.
The coldest area was in the arrowhead where readings fell into the
low to mid 20s.
Ahead of the storm system in the Northern Plains, temperatures will
rise into the 40s and 50s, with low 60s in the southwest. Not much
moisture will accompany a front late this afternoon as winds shift
from the south to the northwest. Cooler air will return overnight
and Monday, but temperatures this week will remain near to slightly
above normal. By late in the week, a strong storm system will bring
rain and snow to the Upper Midwest.
