More cold air is moving into Minnesota aided by winds out of the northwest, while scattered rain and snow showers continue across the state through the day.
Colder air continued to funnel into Minnesota Thursday, dropping temperatures beyond the cooler air the state already saw on Wednesday.
Morning temperatures are in the 20s and 30s, but due to gusty winds, some parts of northern and central Minnesota are seeing wind chills in the teens. Highs will be in the 30s and 40s, putting most of the state at least 10 degrees below average.
High winds continue through Thursday, with gusts over 30 mph, making it feel even colder.
Skies will be mostly cloudy, and it will stay predominantly dry, but there are some light snow showers moving across central and northern Minnesota as of Thursday morning.
Spotty light rain or snow is possible anywhere in Minnesota Thursday. No significant accumulation is expected. Drier and milder weather returns by Friday. That extended forecast will be updated around 9 a.m.
