Cold Saturday into early Sunday; temps rebound Sunday afternoon

Recap of November weather in the Twin Cities

Yes, this is cold enough for me. Thanks for asking!

The Saturday morning low temp at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport was four degrees above zero. Most of northern Minnesota had below-zero low temperatures, and many spots in the north had morning wind chill temps in the 20s below zero.

Saturday afternoon highs will be mainly in the teens across Minnesota and western Wisconsin. There will be a few 20s in far southern Minnesota and in parts of west-central Minnesota. Portions of far northern Minnesota will have single-digit highs today.

Most of the Twin Cities metro area will top out in the upper teens Saturday afternoon, but a stray 20 is possible. Our average Twin Cities high temp is 33 degrees this time of year. Metro area wind chills are expected to remain below zero into early afternoon.

Temperature trends

Low temperatures late Saturday night/early Sunday will be in the single digits across much of northern Minnesota and northwestern Wisconsin, with mainly teens to the south:
