Cold weather Tuesday and Wednesday will be followed by warming weather and snow for Thursday.
After a frigid start Tuesday, temperatures will barely rise in the afternoon, staying below zero for most of the state.
Tuesday night into Wednesday morning will be even colder for many parts of the state, with more overnight temperatures in the negative teens.
Due to this, a wind chill advisory has already been issued for most of Minnesota from Tuesday evening to noon Wednesday.
Another weather system moving in Wednesday evening will bring warmer air along with it, so we warm back up quickly Thursday, into the teens and 20s.
By Friday, much of the state could be back above average, with the Twin Cities in the mid-30s.
Most of the state stays quiet Tuesday, with even a fair amount of sunshine. A minor disturbance clipping south of Minnesota could bring a few flurries to the southern portion of the state.
The next weather system that brings the return of the milder air also brings in snow from Wednesday evening into Thursday. Most of the snow will remain lighter, predominantly 2 inches or less.
Yet another snowy system is right on the heels of that, bringing snow chances again Friday and Saturday.
That currently looks like it will be lighter snow, however that system does bring cold air back. Temperatures could begin falling Saturday, and Sunday will be cold with highs that may only be single digits for much on Minnesota.
