MINNEAPOLIS - A frigid start Friday with temps below zero for the first time since February. Our temperatures mostly in the single digits below zero Friday morning with clear skies in that dry, arctic air. Expect highs just around 5 this afternoon with winds west (& lighter) at 5-12 mph. This will make for wind chill values near -20 Friday morning and between -5 and -10 this afternoon.
Overnight we'll see even colder readings as temps drop to near -10 in the metro under clear skies & light winds. Expect a high of just 4 Saturday. Clouds roll in along with (ever so slightly) warmer air Sunday. We'll see highs in the teens but light snow developing. Accumulations are looking likely Sunday into Sunday evening with a potential of up to 1 to 3 inches across the metro, maybe more in southeast Minnesota. This snow will be a light powder, versus the heavy slush of Wednesday. Temperatures then drop behind the system for early in the week before perhaps rebounding to a balmy 20 by Thursday, next week.
