Colder temperatures return, so does the chance for snow


The warm weather came to an end on Sunday and the cooling trend will continue throughout the week.

Temperatures are expected to be 10 degrees below average, KARE 11 reports, and wind chills could be in the mid-teens for the metro area Monday morning, WCCO says.

And with the colder temperatures comes the chance for snow, especially on Wednesday, the National Weather Service says. WCCO reports that the snow – if it accumulates – will melt quickly, but it could make for a messy commute Thursday morning.

Before you get too down on the forecast, remember it is spring so temperatures will warm up again, probably by the weekend. Highs Saturday for the Twin Cities are in the 50s and 60s, with 70 degrees possible Sunday, KSTP says.

There's also a full lunar eclipse Monday night/Tuesday morning – the best viewing times will be Tuesday from 2 a.m. to 5 a.m., according to KSTP.
