MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The weather outside may be frightful, but the extended forecast is so delightful.

Following the storm fronts over the weekend, temperatures plunged perilously going into the work week. Monday’s high temperatures were not forecasted to break 50 degrees.

WCCO meteorologist Matt Brickman said that there would be no beating around the bush about it. Wind chills were in the teens and 20s in the northwestern portions of the state.

“We can use other words to describe it, but I think ‘yucky’ sums it up,” Brickman said. “The clouds and winds are pushing temperatures way down 20 to 30 degrees cooler than they were this time yesterday morning.”

Brickman said that Tuesday morning would dawn even cooler than that, with temperatures likely to dip down into freezing temperatures. Brickman warned it would likely be a winter coat sort of morning.

Brickman said that things would get better in fairly short order after that, with sunshine and highs back in the 60s and 70s starting midweek.

“Keep that in mind when you step outside today, because you’ll need a little bit of motivation to get through the cool and drizzly start,” Brickman said.
