WCCO brings us their forecast:

The National Weather Service office in Chanhassen sees a cold front coming Friday (but it won't last). Expect temperatures to dip (a little) this weekend, but another surge of warm air should blow in early next week. As for rain or snow, don't expect much of either.

None of this will be welcome news for those who rely on Minnesota's usually wintry weather: dog sled racers, snowmobilers and cross-country skiers, among others.

And, it shouldn't need to be said, but the ice? Probablynotsafe.
