Tonight’s lows are coldest of the the fall, leading to a raw and windy Friday

Good evening! Winds behind today’s cold front are ending up out of the west-northwest and even northwest overnight into Friday. Tonight’s lows are in the 30s up north, with metro lows in mid to low-40s. Winds stay strong throughout the day Friday with sustained winds up to about 25 mph. Off and on showers stay in the forecast overnight, with rain chances tomorrow being higher than they were today. Friday stays mostly cloudy with rain chances off and on throughout the day, tapering off into late Friday. We’re not looking at widespread significant rainfall tonight through tomorrow. Most locations will see under 0.25″ of rainfall in central and southern Minnesota. Northern Minnesota could see a few higher rainfall totals than central MN.

Your weekend starts off cold, with Freeze Watches in place across much of northwestern Minnesota. Patchy frost is possible in the metro area Saturday morning, and is again possible Sunday morning. Right now after tomorrow, there is no significant rainfall in the 7-day forecast.

Have a wonderful night!
