Temperatures remain cool Wednesday

Northern Minnesota finally makes it back into the 40s

All of Minnesota stays cooler than average again Wednesday under a mix of sunshine and clouds.

Wednesday’s forecast

With much of the state seeing predominantly clear skies overnight, especially in central and southern Minnesota, and a continued cool wind flow from the northwest, Wednesday is starting off frosty. Morning temperatures are in the upper teens and 20s, with a few readings near 30 around the Twin Cities.

Highs also stay below average, but with most of the state making it at least into the mid-40s, that is slightly milder than Tuesday, especially for northern Minnesota. The western edge of the state will likely see a few temperatures make it into the low 50s.

This is 5 to 15 degrees below average for late April.

Skies continue to be mostly sunny to partly cloudy through the morning, then southern Minnesota has more clouds develop into the afternoon, with a very isolated chance for a couple sprinkles. 

Thursday turns warm and sunny, but a cold front quickly returns wet weather and cooler temperatures to the state. That extended forecast will be updated around 9:30 a.m.
