Cooler, but less windy Monday

Morning flurries for the Arrowhead

The gusty winds of Sunday ushered cooler weather across Minnesota, but under mostly sunny skies, Monday stays seasonable for the end of November.

Monday’s forecast

Due to mostly clear skies for all but a few parts of eastern Minnesota, temperatures dropped into the teens and single digits overnight.

In the Arrowhead, one of the areas seeing lingering clouds, that cloud cover is also bringing a few light flurries in the morning hours.

Behind the cold front that moved through over the weekend, highs Monday will be even chillier than Sunday despite mostly sunny skies. Highs in the 20s and low 30s are near to slightly below average, except in western Minnesota, where milder temperatures in the 30s will be above average.

The slightly milder weather west is courtesy of breezy winds from the south in the afternoon helping to warm the western edge of the state. Otherwise, winds have died down significantly since Sunday, so wind chill is not as much of a concern across the state.

Above average temperatures return across the entire state by Tuesday, and the weather pattern stays quiet into next week.

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