Get ready for the coldest March 3rd high in recorded Twin Cities history today. But hey, at least it’s not snowing. Here’s your seven-day outlook:
The record cold high for today is 6F set back in 1873, and there’s a very good chance we break that with a high of 1F expected. We could see the same tomorrow as well, as our forecast high is 7F and the record is 8F in 1917. We will see a few flurries or light snow showers late tomorrow in the Twin Cities, otherwise the first part of the week will be calm. A system looks like it will slide off to our south (maybe across southern Minnesota) Thursday afternoon and night, but indications are a little higher for potential snow next weekend at the moment as highs climb into the 30s.
