Colder, Wetter Winter Predicted In Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — This might not be the best time to report this, given Thursday’s mild, sunny temperatures are earmarked as a #Top10WxDay, but predictions hold that this winter will be colder and wetter than average in Minnesota.

Or, at least, a colder and wetter first leg of 2018.

The National Weather Service has released its three-month outlook for the nation, covering the months of January, February and March.

The NWS outlook indicates that Minnesota stands a 40 to 50 percent chance for colder than average temperatures for that time of year.

Also, the NWS says that the majority of Minnesota stands a chance at receiving more precipitation than average during that span.

The only portion of the state that wasn’t included in that prediction was the southwestern section.
