Freeze warnings in effect for most of Minnesota

Play some Christmas music?

A dose of cold air will zip into Minnesota Friday afternoon send temperatures into the range of 25-35 degrees through most of the state overnight into Saturday morning. 

A freeze warning has been issued for almost all of Minnesota overnight from 3 a.m. through 9 a.m. Far southern counties, including the cities of Marshall and Mankato, are excluded from the freeze warning. Rochester is included in it. 

It's a good idea to cover or bring inside any plants or vegetation. If you don't, they might die.

Areas in north-central and northeast Minnesota might get cold enough to break some cold temperature records for Sep. 29, according to the NWS in Duluth.

In extreme northwest Minnesota, the NWS is calling for an overnight low of 23 degrees in Roseau and just 24 degrees in Thief River Falls. 

The weekend won't provide much of a warmup with temps both days in the mid-40s to mid-50s. It should crack 50 degrees each day in the Twin Cities, but outlying areas might struggle to break 50. 

Temps should climb back into the 60s by Tuesday.
