Record cold likely again Monday

Skies remain dry and sunshine returns

Snow has cleared out, bringing more sunshine back Monday, but temperatures stay chilly enough that parts of Minnesota could see record cold.

Monday’s forecast

The system that brought snow to most of Minnesota Sunday has moved off. Despite the recent cold, lingering cloud cover kept temperatures from dropping much overnight, so most of the state is starting in the 20s Monday morning. 

Skies clear through the day, finally bringing more sunshine across the state, but even that won’t warm us up much.  Most of the state sees highs in the 20s, which is 20 to 25 degrees below average.

This will likely set record cold high temperatures for portions of central and southern Minnesota, including the Twin Cities, which also set a record Sunday.

After a chilly start Tuesday, temperatures slowly start to rise through the week. That extended forecast will be updated around 9:30 a.m.
