Temps Hit 60s in the Metro Thursday

October 18, 2018 08:54 AM

Thursday is expected to be the warmest day in the metro in over two weeks.

Chief Morning Meteorologist Ken Barlow said temperatures will rise into the lower to mid-60s in the metro and could even reach the high 60s south of the Twin Cities.


Barlow said gusting winds of up to 25 mph are also expected Thursday afternoon.

Then, a few late-night rain showers will last into Friday morning before the sunshine returns Friday.

Barlow said warmer weather will come to an abrupt end Friday evening. A strong, northwesterly wind is expected to push colder air into the state.

A few rain showers are expected Friday night and early Saturday morning. Some of that rain could mix with snow early Saturday before the sky clears once more, Barlow said.

Barlow said although temperatures Saturday are expected to be in the 40s, the wind will make it feel like temperatures are in the 30s.
