Sprinkles overnight, widespread frost possible start of next week

Good evening! I hope you are enjoying the first chilly weekend that we’ve had so far this fall! Highs today reached into the low-50s for most of us, with a high of 54° for the metro. Overnight lows tonight are in the mid-40s for the Twin Cities, with mostly cloudy skies (partly cloudy Sunday). A few sprinkles and light scattered showers remain possible this evening, as well as overnight tonight into Sunday. Most of us will stay dry though, and any rainfall that we do get, will generally be in the form of trace amounts of moisture.

Monday morning and Tuesday morning will be in the mid to upper-30s in the metro, with mid to low-30s west and north of the Twin Cities possible. This could mean widespread frost by the start of next workweek. We could even by looking at some freeze concerns across northwestern Minnesota.

Temperatures will trend below average through the next 7-days, with highs mainly in the mid to upper-50s. Thursday night into Friday (and potentially Saturday), we have a stronger storm system centered south of Minnesota that could bring strong winds and soaking rainfall especially Friday. Minnesota, right now, is on the northern edge of significant impacts from that late week system. So right now it looks like the significant rainfall would be relegated to mainly along and south of I-94, as well as far eastern MN along the WI boarder tracking eastward bringing rainfall to Wisconsin at large. We’re still a handful of days out, so much could change. You’ll want to stay up to date with the forecast!

Have a wonderful weekend!
