We saw warmer temperatures Sunday; high temperatures were in the 30s and 40s all across Greater Minnesota.
Granite Falls was the warm spot with a high Sunday of
49 degrees. In both Madison and Montevideo, it hit a fairly warm
48 degrees. Morris topped out at
43, and Alexandria climbed to 42.
Elbow Lake and Kimball were a bit cooler at 41 degrees Sunday. Sebeka and Menahga both hit
39 degrees for daytime highs.
Some light snow will be possible Tuesday night into Wednesday. We could see some accumulation of snow across the area.
Cooler air will be with us for the midweek as highs will fall back into the mid- to upper-20s. We should warm up a bit by Friday out ahead of our next system.
Yet another cold front is expected to arrive by the weekend. This could bring some additional light snow by Saturday evening into Sunday across the area.
Welcome to November.
Weather history: On this date in 1947, records show that a snowstorm moved across the state. High winds caused “a million dollars in damage.”
Weather facts: Did you know that wind is caused by differences in the atmospheric pressure? When a difference in atmospheric pressure exists, “air moves from the higher to the lower pressure area which results in winds of various speeds.”
