This is typically the cloudiest time of the year, and it has been living up to that reputation lately as we’ve had little if any sun in our area for what seems like weeks now. Yet another chilly gray early November day across the Northland with highs in the mid 20s to around the freezing mark.
Tonight: Mostly cloudy skies although some breaks in the clouds could develop through the night. A few flurries possible. Lows will be in the teens and 20s with single digits where skies can clear for a few hours.
Monday: A weak disturbance moving east out of the northern Plains could bring some snow showers or flurries to parts of east central Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin sometime from late Monday afternoon through Monday night, not much accumulation expected, maybe a half inch in a few spots. Should stay dry across northern Minnesota. Highs Monday around 30 degrees, lows Monday night in the teens and 20s.
Note: Another chance for a dusting of snow comes to the Northland Wednesday evening through Thursday morning with arctic air following this burst of light snow. Daytime highs on Thursday are forecast to only be in the teens to around 20 degrees with lows Friday morning between 5 above to 10 below zero the way it looks now (Well below average for early November)
