Meteorologist Sven Sundgaard says there's not much happening weather-wise this week in Minnesota, though it is worth pointing out that Nov. 18 is the last day where the Twin Cities' normal high is 40 degrees.

We don't get that kind of warmth, on average, again until early March. Buckle up, it might be a longer winter than usual. Ugh. 

The Thanksgiving-week forecast is still up in the air, but Sven says the models are hinting at a more active pattern, or at least the chance of something brewing in the Upper Midwest next week.

The National Weather Service agrees with Sven, noting in the Wednesday morning forecast discussion that the European model shows a low pressure system impacting the Upper Midwest early next week. But confidence is low because other models have a storm system way up in the Canadian prairies. 

"It seems like our weather could get exciting next week but more time is needed to figure out where," the NWS said.
