Say so long to summer.
An unseasonably early surge of cold and dry air will push into the region on Wednesday.
The National Weather Service has issued a freeze warning from midnight Wednesday to 8 a.m. Thursday for much of central and south central Minnesota starting at midnight Wednesday into 8 a.m. Thursday. Temperatures are expected to drop into the upper 20's -- low enough to kill some crops and sensitive vegetation.
The areas that will be hit hardest by the icy blast will be around the Devils Lake basin; and parts of north central Minnesota around Bemidji and Park Rapids. The Twin Cities is also part of the warning area.
Don't worry though -- this isn't the start of a steady slide into winter. A slow warm up is expected early next week.
