Clouds roll across Minnesota Wednesday

Most of the state sees highs in the 30s

Even with more clouds moving across the state, temperatures remain above average throughout Wednesday.

Wednesday’s forecast

Although seasonably chilly, temperatures Wednesday morning are starting off slightly warmer than Tuesday. Most of the state is starting in the teens, with a few single digits in the Arrowhead and a couple 20s in southern Minnesota.

A weak cold front passes through the state during the day, but it doesn’t bring either precipitation or much cold air into the state. There will be more clouds along with it though, and the extra cloud cover keeps highs in northern Minnesota a few degrees cooler than Tuesday.

Even with that, the entire state is above average in the afternoon, ranging from a few upper 20s north to the lower 40s in southern Minnesota.
