Cold snap comes Tuesday night and lasts through Thursday

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00
Arctic high pressure will usher in cold air.

TUESDAY NIGHT: Wind Chill Advisory in effect for Minnesota until Wednesday morning. Arctic high pressure will take over the region and clear the sky and cool the temperatures. Lows will run -10 to -15 in Minnesota. The range will be -5 to -12 in Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula. The wind will be WNW 10-15 mph.

WEDNESDAY: The high will park itself over the central U.S. for several days so Wednesday will be mostly sunny and chilly. High temps will run 5-9 in MN. They'll go 7-10 in WI and MI. The wind will be WNW 5-15 mph.

THURSDAY: The high will bring us arctic weather for one more day meaning a sunny sky with a low of -10 and a high of 16. Normal high this time of year is 25.

FRIDAY: High pressure systems may start arctic but don't always stay that way. On Friday, the long lasting high will be far enough south of our region that its clockwise flow will push a southerly wind to us. That will end the cold snap and start a multi-day warm spell. Friday low will be 9 and the high will hit 35.

WEEKEND: Saturday will be yet another sunny day but the morning low will be toasty at 20 and very mild later with a high of 36. Sunday may be the last sunny day the high hath wrought but it will be warm again: low temp 22 with high of 37. Monday should stay mild but clouds will increase and flurries will be possible.
