Mostly sunny skies for Monday

Winds increase and wintry weather moves in late

Monday stays relatively quiet with sunshine and seasonable temperatures. However, changes late in the day set the stage for a messy Tuesday.

Monday’s forecast

Apart from a few more clouds near the Arrowhead and a couple areas of light snow there, weather across Minnesota is starting off quiet Monday morning.  Morning temperatures range from teens and single digits north to low 20s south under predominantly clear skies.

It stays mostly sunny through the day and highs vary from the upper 20s north to lower 40s south, which is near average.

By the afternoon, winds turn breezier in western Minnesota and more clouds begin to move in west to east. 

A mix of wintry weather starts to move in by late Monday evening, bringing rain, snow and light freezing precipitation.

This is ahead of a system that moves across the state overnight and into Tuesday, causing travel concerns by Tuesday morning.

That extended forecast, including the Thanksgiving outlook will be updated around 9 a.m.
