MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The bad news is that Tuesday is really, really cold. The good news is that it’s going to get a little bit warmer later this week.
The other bad news is that we’re looking to possibly get another fresh dose of snowfall in Minnesota. Oh yes, it’s going to be a “six of one, half a dozen of the other” sort of week.
On Tuesday morning, the state saw some teeth-chattering wind chill readings, including 43 degrees below zero in Wells, 39 below in Morris, 32 below in Waconia, and 28 below in Mankato.
WCCO meteorologist Mike Augustyniak said Wednesday morning should be pretty frigid as well, though likely boasting lighter winds. High temperatures tomorrow are expected to only reach the teens, but there will again be a lot of sunshine.
Augustyniak said he is tracking the possibility for some snow to move in late Thursday.
“It’s pretty early, but the storm track has been pretty consistent,” Augustyniak said.
By the end of Friday, the Twin Cities metro area could see snowfall totals up to 3 inches over a roughly 36- to 48-hour period, so Augustyniak isn’t expecting any periods of particularly heavy snowfall.
More snow is expected to fall further south, especially around the Interstate 90 corridor. Northern Minnesota should only see trace amounts.
