More record cold for northern Minnesota

Mostly sunny and mild into the afternoon

After another morning with widespread frost and freeze concerns, the state makes it into the 60s by afternoon under plentiful sunshine.

Friday’s forecast

Northern and parts of eastern Minnesota are starting frosty, with temperatures at or near freezing, dipping as far south as the northern side of the Twin Cities.

Because of this, frost advisories (blue) and freeze warnings (purple) were issued again overnight until 8 a.m. 

The Arrowhead is seeing another morning of record lows, including Duluth at 28 degrees, and International Falls, which dropped to 20.

Under mostly sunny skies, temperatures rise quickly, with the Arrowhead in the mid- to upper 50s, and the rest of Minnesota in the 60s.

Winds stay light for most of the state, although slightly breezier right along the western border. 

Those winds are out of the south and warm the entire state back into the 70s over the weekend. 

That extended forecast will be updated around 9 a.m.
