Yep, that's snow. Chill makes you check if it's May – or March

An unseasonable belt of spring snow pushed from parts of North Dakota into western Minnesota early Monday, leaving a measurable amount in Devil's Lake and a dusting in Grand Forks and Bemidji.

The Grand Forks Herald warns areas of snow, rain, sleet and freezing drizzle could occur across the region Monday, with north winds of 30 to 40 mph, with gusts up to 50 mph, expected through the Red River Valley through the morning hours.

The Pioneer Press reports residents in the metro area can expect temperatures to feel dramatically cooler than over the weekend, noting the National Weather Service forecast predicts the Twin Cities will reach a high of 47 degrees for the day, a 27-degree drop from the high on Sunday.

A high of 47 would also be close to the record lowest high for the day – that was 45 degrees back in 1890, the newspaper notes. The average temperature this time of year is 70 degrees.

Expect it to get even colder overnight, with temperatures falling to around 37 degrees in the metro. WCCO's morning weather forecast included the wind chill factor.

There's a freeze warning for parts of western Minnesota overnight; areas of central Minnesota and western Wisconsin could also see some frost or freezing.

The week will slowly warm up. Highs are predicted to be near 55 on Tuesday and hit 61 on Wednesday. By Thursday and Friday, highs are expected to be in the upper 60's.
