Quiet but cold tonight as clouds will decrease a bit and become partly cloudy. Lows overnight will drop into the upper teens, low 20s with winds out of the west at 5-10 mph.
A shortwave will pass to our South on Monday so that brings mostly cloudy skies for much of the region. Areas to our north will see partly cloudy to partly sunny skies. Even with the sunshine temperatures will remain cold with highs only climbing into the upper 30s. Lows overnight drop back into the low 20s.
A weak low-pressure system will slide into our region early Tuesday morning, and with the temperatures as cold as they are snow will be likely. This weaker system is capable of producing a couple of inches of snow Tuesday afternoon into overnight hours. Highs will be in the upper 30s with a southeast wind. Snow totals are looking like 2-4" for much of central, and south-central Minnesota. 1-3" for the rest of the region, however, a few higher totals could be seen along the Northshore with higher terrain.
A few flurries will linger into Wednesday morning, then we'll see mostly cloudy skies for the afternoon as high pressure moves back in. Highs will climb to near 40 degrees with winds out of the west at 10-15 mph.
Beyond the extended, cold weather will continue with below-average temperatures. Tune in tonight at 10 as Meteorologist Kaitlyn Moffett tracks the next chance of snow as well as what the extended forecast looks like.
