Arctic Air to Bring 60mph Winds and Snow Later in the Week

Met Office meteorologist Charles Powell warned temperatures could drop even lower than last week as northerly gales blast the UK. Most of the Twin Cities area should see less than an inch beginning Monday evening, but as much as eight or more inches is possible in northern Minnesota, according to the National Weather Service.

Before the cold arrives, however, widespread rain showers are expected on Tuesday followed by lake effect snow showers and periodic light snow into the second half of the week.

There is a slight chance of overnight showers, increasing to an 80 percent chance of occasional showers throughout the day on Tuesday. Temperatures will range between eight and 10 degrees with light southwest breezes. The chance of snow is placed by the forecasters at 40 percent.

Tuesday night is expected to be 42 degrees and rainy, with wind gusts as high as 20 miles per hour, according to the National Weather Service.

Wednesday, the high will be near 45 with mostly sunny skies, the weather service said.

For those heading back out Thursday, the cold pattern will remain with a sunny and brisk day and a high of 36. The overnight low is expected to be near 19.

Friday will be mostly cloudy, with a high in the upper 30s and a Friday-night low in the mid 20s, the weather service said.

Today will start off as partly sunny and gradually become sunny with a high of 52.

Saturday, it will be sunny with a high near 39, the weather service said.
