Hot and cold: Frost advisory issued for Northland

Wait, wasn't it just 95 degrees? It got chilly in a hurry, and now temperatures could dip into the low to mid-30s across the Iron Range, parts of the Arrowhead and much of northwestern Wisconsin, the National Weather Service says. Expect Twin Cities highs in the just the mid-60s early next week.

Minnesota residents this week went from sweaty brows to sweatshirts. The Twin Cities was 1 degree shy of a high temperature record of 96 on Tuesday. But now we're talking frost for the Northland on Friday, the Duluth News Tribune reports.

The Duluth airport on average records a frost by Sept. 23 and a hard freeze by Oct 18, the newspaper reports.

It's even possible the state could see its first – brace yourself – snowflakes early next week, MPR's weather Updraft blog says.

Saturday and Sunday, expect mostly sunny and a high of about 81 in the Twin Cities and mid- to low-70s in Duluth, the National Weather Service says.

Early next week, expect highs in the low- to mid-60s, WCCO says:

And how about that rain? The Twin Cities didn't get much, only about one-tenth of an inch, KARE 11 says.
