40s or warmer for most of Minnesota Thursday

The morning starts off with some icy spots again

 Snow cover across Minnesota erodes even more Thursday, thanks to sunshine and highs in the 40s and 50s.

Thursday’s forecast

Thursday is off to another mild start for early March, with morning temperatures ranging from a few teens north to a few 30s south. This means the snow melt from Wednesday has refrozen in most areas, so keep an eye out for black ice again Thursday morning. 

There are also very isolated light fog areas again that lift by midmorning.

The quiet weather trend continues with mostly sunny skies Thursday, although it will be a little breezy. 

Highs for most of the state make it back into the 40s, with a few 50s south.

The mild air and sunshine mean significant snow melt continues through the day.

By the weekend, parts of southern Minnesota, including the Twin Cities could see highs hit 60. That extended forecast will be updated around 9 a.m.
