Turning colder with a chance for rain, snow later this week

Halloween looks fantastic for trick-or-treating.

November is fast approaching and with its arrival on Thursday will come a bit of a cool down along with some precipitation chances, some of which could be in the form of snow. 

Temps across most of Minnesota on Monday will be around 50 degrees, although there's a shot at 60 in southwest parts of the state if the sun is able to break through the cloud cover. 

Tuesday and Wednesday will be pleasant with highs around 50 in the metro, slightly cooler the further west and north you go, meaning trick-or-treating weather should be pretty good perfect with temps in the mid-40s and no rain or snow in the Twin Cities. 

Areas of southern Minnesota could be in line for some mixed precipitation, rain and snow, overnight Thursday into Friday morning, followed by more rain/snow chances over the weekend, including in parts of northern Minnesota. 

The National Weather Service says temperatures will be cold enough overnight and in the early morning hours to support snow before it changes over to rain with the heating of the day. Nothing big is expected of the rain/snow chances, so no need to worry about gassing up the snowblower just yet.

Looking further down the road, the 10-day temperature forecast remains cool with daily highs in the low 40s for the Twin Cities, with temps struggling to crack 40 degrees up north, which is all well and normal considering the average high in the Twin Cities in November is just 41 degrees.
