Cold air, small snow chances, start off your weekend

30 December 2017

Sunny skies and southwest winds will push temperatures to 20° Tuesday afternoon after morning lows near zero. Even more bitter Wednesday night with lows in the teen and single digits, but at least the wind will subside.

Saturday we will see a cold front move into the region.

On Saturday and Sunday, Minneapolis is forecast to have highs of only about minus-20 degrees (minus-5F), with lows near minus-25 degrees (minus-15F). Monday and Tuesday will see highs in the 20s with lows in the teens under clear skies.

Temperatures remain below the normal of low 60s through January 4. The cold temperatures will stick around for the rest of next week with highs in the 40s and lows in the 20s each night through Friday.

FRIDAY: Partly to mostly cloudy skies and a few snow flurries are possible, with a high temperature of 24 degrees.

High temperatures may not exceed minus-23 degrees (minus-10F) on Saturday, which would threaten some records.

New Year's Day will be very cold.

But that same cold front is expected to dip into Florida late next week, potentially cutting average temperatures in half along the way.

Expect the cold weather to carry into this evening and overnight. While we're dealing with temperatures in the 20s and 30s on New Year's Day, the folks in Duluth, Minnesota, will be lucky if their first day of 2018 even gets above zero.
