Weather Blog: No Snow, But …

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — We escaped the latest storm system without one single flake.

Parts of southeastern Minnesota racked up three inches, while some towns in Wisconsin endured nearly a foot of snow with others experiencing thunder snow.

The two things we can’t escape are the strong northwest winds and the cooler air being pulled in from Canada.

Thursday will be the coolest day since early May. Our high around 41 degrees will feel worse with a persistent northwest wind.

Now, the good news.

A warm front will be approaching from the west causing the wind to shift from the southwest. That will usher in warmer air for Veterans Day, and towns enjoying the feel of the 50s this weekend.

Also, I don’t see any big storms in sight.
