Well, the dog days of winter seem to be here in the Twin Cities, even though it’s still the first half of November. Our forecast keeps us in the upper 20s today, but back to around 40 degrees tomorrow.
Here’s a great view from International Falls this morning, the Icebox of America:

Yikes. That’s about all I have to say about that.
Luckily, we warm up after today. Here’s a look at your Minneapolis 7 day forecast (and St. Paul 7 day forecast):
So you might have noticed some snowflakes in the forecast for tonight to tomorrow in Minneapolis/St. Paul. What’s happening is a warm front coming through, helping bump us up 10 degrees or more between today and tomorrow. That often leads to clouds and precipitation… in this case, snow.
Snow flurries could happen by late afternoon, but any light snow should really hold off until evening. Here’s the future radar as we get closer to evening:
The blues in the map above would indicate the better chance for light accumulations. Note that the coverage of blue increases as we fast-forward later into the evening:
Snow showers come to an end in the Twin Cities by Saturday, and we’re left warmer with clouds. By Monday to Tuesday we’re well into the 40s, and possibly near 50. It’s a shift closer to, and possibly, above our average high – which is in the mid-40s now.
