If you thought it felt cold Sunday, you're really going to feel it today. 

Temperatures across most of Minnesota will fail to reach 20 degrees, making it 5-10 degrees colder than it was Sunday. High/low temps for Monday and Monday night: 

  • Twin Cities: 21/8
  • St. Cloud: 18/5
  • Duluth: 22/8
  • Mankato: 21/8
  • Rochester: 21/7
  • Marshall: 18/6
  • Moorhead: 16/3 – temp will drop to around 11 degrees during the day. 
  • Bemidji: 14/1

Monday night into Tuesday morning it really gets cold with temperatures dropping into the single digits, perhaps even down to zero in northern Minnesota where skies are free of clouds.

Remember, the average high temp in the Twin Cities in November is 44 degrees, so we're trending more like Alaska this time of year than we are Minnesota. The high temp in Juneau, Alaska today is forecast to reach 49 degrees! 

Tuesday warms up slightly with highs into the 20s, then the real warmup, albeit a 48-hour break from the cold, arrives Wednesday and Thursday with highs in the 40s – maybe even 50 degrees in western Minnesota.

Alas, another shot of Arctic air plunges south for Friday through the weekend where the National Weather Service is confidently ballparking temps to be in the 25- to- 35-degree range in the Twin Cities. 

The only real shot at snow is some light stuff on Friday and Saturday but no accumulations are currently expected.
