MINNESOTA (WCCO) – We’ve barely gotten started with fall weather, and it appears that winter will be rearing its ugly head in Minnesota by the end of the week.
A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for parts of far northwestern Minnesota starting Thursday night. That area could see up to a couple inches of wet snow between Thursday night and most of the day Friday. Up by International Falls there could be six to eight inches of snow. It’s expected to start Thursday and go all day Friday, according to WCCO-TV Meteorologist Mike Augustyniak.
Highs are expected to get near 80 on Wednesday, but we’ll struggle to get to 50 the rest of the week around the Twin Cities metro. It’s also expected to get breezy and winds will consistently be around 20 miles per hour and gusting to as high as 40 miles per hour at times.
It always comes around at some point, but we always seemed surprised when we get that first really cold and snowy day.
