Freezing fog possible but otherwise a very seasonable weather week ahead for Minnesota

Temps will climb to freezing, maybe slightly above, this week.

Good news, Twin Cities commuters, there's no appreciable snowfall in the forecast this week and you won't freeze your butt off when you walk out the door. 

All in all, a very seasonable week ahead for all of Minnesota with daily high temps ranging 25-35 degrees pretty much everywhere from far southern Minnesota to extreme northern parts of the state. Overnight lows will dip into the low 20s and upper teens, which is right on par for this time of year.

Freezing fog could make sidewalks, side streets, porches, decks, bridges and ramps slick Monday and Tuesday morning, but there's hardly any appreciable precipitation in the forecast. 

The only chance for light snow and maybe some freezing drizzle this week is in west-central Wisconsin on Wednesday and southern Minnesota on Thursday. Other than that, high and dry.
