Frost and Freeze headlines tonight, possibly tomorrow night too
Here’s your Monday evening forecast for October 9, 2023 from Minnesota’s Weather Authority and Meteorologist Wren Clair.
Good evening! Today was a beautiful fall day with highs in the mid-50s, and this morning’s low temperature of 38° was the coldest for the metro since early May. Tonight is another cold night with Frost Advisories in place for the Twin Cities and southern Minnesota, from late tonight through early Tuesday. Lows will be in the mid-30s across the advisory areas. Freeze Warnings are in place across the northern half of Minnesota and northwestern Wisconsin, for tonight through early tomorrow morning. The Freeze warnings are in place along and north of a line from about Wilmar to St. Cloud to Hibbing and northward. Temperatures will be in as cool as the low-30s for those under a Freeze Warning tonight.
Tuesday is another mostly sunny forecast with highs in the mid-50s. Wednesday is another dry day with increasing cloud cover into the afternoon and evening, and warmer highs in the upper-50s (and low-60s across southern Minnesota). Thursday is breezy and cloudy, with rain moving in first across southern Minnesota, then lifting northward into the metro into the afternoon. The center of the storm system that brings us rain Thursday PM, all day Friday, and rain tapering off Saturday with stay centered to the south and southeast of Minnesota. While we’re on the northern edge of this storm system, we’ll still keep breezy even windy conditions in place Thursday through Saturday as this system stays in the region. Most of the Twin Cities could see around an inch of rainfall with this late workweek storm system. Southern Minnesota could see closer to 2″ of rainfall, with northern Minnesota not seeing much moisture from this round of rain.
Have a wonderful night!
