Here’s your Sunday evening forecast for February 5, 2023 from KSTP Meteorologist Matt Serwe.
The sun just made Sunday afternoon. It was beautiful, even though temperatures held around 30°. Clouds are back tonight, and southeast winds start to ramp up around daybreak. Gusts could reach 30 to 35 mph at times on Monday, making the highs in the mid 30s feel a little cooler. Rain and snow are possible Monday afternoon. North of the Twin Cities, chances are you will see all slushy snow, and up to an inch of accumulation. South of the metro, it will be mostly rain. However, a mix of rain and snow is likely in the Twin Cities during the Monday afternoon commute. Since temperatures will be above freezing, roads will likely remain wet.
Warm weather and sun stick around for most of this week. The best day to get out will be Wednesday, when highs could flirt with 40° around the metro. There is another chance for isolated rain or snow showers on Thursday, but any precipitation would be very light and have no impact. After another brief Friday cool down, temperatures should be back above average by next weekend.
