We’re getting the cold Canadian shoulder this November.
Temperatures this month are running more than 7 degrees colder than average so far in the Twin Cities and much of Minnesota.
Our latest cold front blows another unseasonably cold air mass again through Friday morning. Then, an even colder air mass blasts south from Canada by Sunday and Monday. Temperatures will approach record cold levels in Minnesota by Veterans Day. We’re running out of blue on the weather maps this month.
I saw snowfall totals up to 6 inches of snow near the Iowa border today. About an inch fell in the south metro. The north metro got skunked.

Multiple cold air pulses
We get at least two cold air pulses in the next week. The first is blowing in now. We recover into the 40s in southern Minnesota Saturday. Sunday’s cold front packs even more bite. Temperatures early next week will be near record-cold levels.
The record low maximum (high) temperature for Monday is 18 degrees at MSP Airport. We’ll be close.
There are still signs temperatures may moderate back into the 40s to near 50 degrees in about 2 weeks.
MSP Doppler work next week
Technicians will be working on another update on the MSP Doppler next week. The radar will be down a few days.
