Clouds decrease Tuesday; much warmer Wednesday, Thursday
A fresh coating of snow fell for many places in central and northern Minnesota into western Wisconsin late Monday into Monday night.
Most places saw less than 1 inch of snow, although there were several spots that picked up around 1.5 inches. The Twin Cities officially saw nine-tenths (.9) of an inch of snowfall at the Minneapolis-St. Paul international airport. Duluth picked up seven-tenths (.7) of an inch.
The snowfall in the Twin Cities was more than we saw in all of November!

Tuesday will be slightly warmer than normal, in the 30s for most, with decreasing clouds. Winds will be from the northwest at 6 to 12 mph.
Wednesday will see some sunshine with much warmer temperatures pushing into the state. We’ll see widespread 40s in southern Minnesota with some low 50s southwest.
Thursday looks to be the day that temperatures top out at near-record levels for some. Highs will be above 50 in southern Minnesota, 20 to 25 degrees warmer than normal.
A clipper system moves across northern Minnesota Thursday night into Friday. It will bring some rain and snow showers, and also a trailing cold front that will drop temperatures to more seasonable levels (20s and 30s) for the weekend.
