Unseasonably warm weather continues with highs near 70 degrees in southern parts of the state on Wednesday, local forecasters say. It'll be 64 degrees, MPR's Paul Huttner says, near the record of 67. (Average high for Wednesday is 38 degrees.)
And Thanksgiving Day will be partly sunny with a high of about 55 in the metro, but it'll get colder quick as families feast on Thursday, the National Weather Service says.
If you plan to venture into the masses of Black Friday shoppers, expect to wade back into the cold. It'll dip to 21 degrees at 4 a.m. Friday in the Twin Cities, with a wind chill of about 10, WCCO says. Friday's high will be just 29, WCCO says.
Light snow is possible in the northern part of the state on Thursday, KARE 11 says.
The weekend will bring highs in the mid-30s, WCCO reports (KARE 11 is more optimistic: high 30s) and light snow is expected in parts of the state early next week.
