Wren’s Monday Evening Forecast
Good evening! Tonight’s forecast and your Tuesday forecast remain relatively quiet. Areas of refreeze are likely tonight, and some patchy fog is possible (but I don’t anticipate widespread or dense fog). So watch out for slick spots tomorrow, especially in the morning. Otherwise, highs tomorrow are back into the mid to upper-30s with dry skies.
Light snow returns overnight Tuesday into Wednesday morning, for the western half of the state of Minnesota, with snow chances returning to eastern MN into Wednesday afternoon. From Wednesday PM though early Thursday morning most of Minnesota into western Wisconsin, can expect a coating-2″ of snowfall.
Heavier snow is likely late Thursday into early Friday morning, and we will likely have some slow commutes during this time. Light sctd. snow stays in the forecast over this weekend, late in the day Saturday into Sunday. The good news is that we don’t have any blast of arctic air in this current forecast. Instead, temperatures generally stay just a little below average in the mid to low-30s for highs and lows in the mid to low-20s.
