Colder temperatures moved into the Northland today with highs generally in the mid 40s to around 50 degrees which is roughly 5-10 degrees below average for October 9. Note: 850mb temperatures were as low as -4 C in northern Minnesota late this afternoon. Quite a bit of cloud cover over the area today but no precipitation.
Widespread frost and freeze expected overnight across northeast Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin. Partly to mostly cloudy skies this evening should become mostly clear later in the night with lows falling into the 20s and 30s with some spots up north possibly dipping into the upper teens! Note: I think will have some frost even near Lake Superior for the first time this fall come Tuesday morning.
Skies should be mostly sunny for Tuesday with highs in the 50s.
Dry weather should continue Wednesday with highs in the mid 40s to mid 50s, unfortunately it looks like there will be more clouds for Wednesday, so if you prefer sunshine, enjoy Tuesday’s weather!
