Wind chills in the 20s Tuesday afternoon

Northern Minnesota sees another round of light snow

Tuesday stays much colder than average, with breezy conditions making temperatures feel even chillier.

Tuesday’s forecast

Under mostly clear skies overnight, temperatures plummeted into the teens and a few single digits as of Tuesday morning. Thanks to widespread sunshine, highs make it into the 30s for all of the state.

This is still 15 to 20 degrees below average for late October, but slightly milder than Monday.
It will feel colder than the 30s though, because breezy winds with gusts 20 to 30 mph will put the wind chill in the 20s.

Although most of the state sees sun, northern Minnesota will have more clouds move in during the afternoon hours, thanks to a disturbance tracking just to our north.  As that clips by, northern Minnesota sees light snow chances from Tuesday afternoon into early Wednesday.

Significant snowfall is not expected, with snow totals expected to remain under an inch in most locations.

Temperatures continue their slow climb Wednesday and return close to average by Halloween. 
That extended forecast will be updated around 9 a.m.
