Here’s your Tuesday evening forecast for October 10, 2023 from Minnesota’s Weather Authority and Meteorologist Wren Clair.

Dry skies hold tonight, with light and variable winds overnight. It’s another cold one with frost likely and lows in the mid to upper-30s. Tomorrow’s highs are near 60° with mostly sunny skies in the morning, then increasing cloud cover afternoon into Wednesday night.

Rain arrives Thursday first across southern Minnesota, with heavy rainfall possible for central and southern Minnesota, especially Thursday night through early Saturday morning.
