Winter Storm Possible This Sunday

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Do you like getting slapped in the face? Open your front door and step outside. The simulation will be striking.

After a string of days boasting above-average, even reasonably “comfortable” temperatures, Friday’s cool-down is a stark reminder that winter is still very much with us.

Temperatures have reverted back to a more appropriate average for this time of year, with Friday’s highs expected to reach the high 20s.

Which would be bad enough were it not for the high winds that have whipped up. With gusts approaching speeds to match the current temperatures, it felt closer to 10 degrees in the Twin Cities at about 7 a.m.

The winds should remain through the rest of the day.

There may be some flurries in northern Minnesota later Friday, but that will be mere prelude to what we can expect on Sunday.

And that means that all that snow melt we’ve experienced over the last few days could all be for naught. Some early forecast models are predicting that parts of western and central Minnesota could get more than a foot of snow on Sunday going into Monday. The system could also bring an ice-snow mix.

The entire seven-day forecast calls for highs at or around freezing, and lows in the low teens.

Yes, winter is not over yet. Not by a long shot.

    Weather terrorists. It’s still not that cold. Calm the hell down.

    • Rondo

      Unions totally suck, nothing like brining america down. Supporting subpar performance, helping people keep jobs even if they don’t work hard like the newbies. Oh yeah, the weather is going to be fun.

      • C Nablus

        No Rondo, you totally suck

      • Jessica

        Rondo- Do you like getting paid as much as you do? The unions helped EVERYONE get higher wages. They are for workers rights.

        This is a WEATHER article, why are we talking about unions?

    I believe that it is the responsibility of the unions. Perhaps the legislature will pass a bill mandating that the unions make the temperatures go back up.

    • Joe

      Our democrats in the Wisconsin Senate just fled the state. Must be the approaching storm.

  • Fred

    Katrina, Put a cork in it,

    • Chris

      Well, where there is a victim, there must be someone to blame…
      and charge a fee to… with lawyers and union bosses getting a cut!

    • BudK

      What’s wrong, Fred? You get to talk but we don’t? Typical liberal.

  • Uber

    The GOP needs to evacuate the state until the temperatures rise above 32F. The DEMS are pulling a fast one with these cold temps!


    OMG…this a weather forecast NOT political talk. Shoot yourself or give it a rest!!!

    • BudK

      Your hair is too short for this WX, Buzz.

  • mark from

    I will send you all a postcard from Key West

    • JoKe

      We still don’t care, Mark. Stay there and you can stop your whining about MN taxes for good.

  • It's Nice in Minnesota

    Looks like the cold already got to people’s hearts.

  • Dave Seavy

    Every year we get a teaser; a warm daiy or two and everybody thinks spring is in the air. Then, just about state tournament time, the snow really hits the fan. People have short memories. When it’s the end of April and still snowing, then we can complain.


    unions hold Wisconsin hostage … they want taxpayer money so they can raise the member dues and print more propaganda

  • Sheesh

    The snow, Oh no!

  • Barney

    I think the unions give us all a snow job, so all this talk is totally appropriate!

  • Goob

    Think the wisconny plow drivers will call in sick?? We shall find out!!

  • Sally Mae

    Unions. What a joke. unions are mouthpieces for lazy people

  • john doe
