Temperatures turn colder again Thursday

Most of Minnesota sees a chance for snow overnight

Minnesota sees temperatures back in the 30s Thursday, and light snow targets the state by the end of the day.

Thursday’s forecast

Behind a cold front that moved through on Wednesday, temperatures across Minnesota have turned colder again. Morning temperatures are ranging from teens north to a few 30s south. 
With northerly winds still drawing in colder air, temperatures only rise to highs in the 30s Thursday, which especially for southern Minnesota, is only a warmup of a few degrees from morning lows.

There will be a mix of clouds and sunshine through the day, with more clouds moving in by evening as a weather disturbance starts making its way into the state.  That disturbance also brings very light snow across a wide section of central Minnesota from Thursday evening through the overnight. Most places will see less than an inch of snow.
