MINNEAPOLIS -- The cold air is departing Friday leaving us with a nice break for a couple of days from the bitter cold. We're seeing temperatures in the teens Friday morning and will top out in the middle 20s today. Look for decreasing clouds but also the possibility of some patchy areas of freezing drizzle, mostly affecting side streets & sidewalks rather than the well-salted highways & freeways (esp. in the metro area). Winds will be from the southeast at 5-13 mph today.

Overnight temperatures will continue to go up from the 20s. We'll see highs potentially near 40 Saturday! Enjoy that mini-thaw, another blast of arctic cold moves in Sunday into Monday. Highs Sunday will be in the teens & windy. Monday may not reach 10 degrees, but like this last blast, it will be short-lived. Highs Tuesday and the middle of next week will be back into the upper 20s.
