Sven Sundgaard says parts of Minnesota might even touch 50 degrees on Tuesday, and Paul Douglas shares some interesting factoids about this year's weird weather.

We should see near-record warmth on Tuesday. Kare 11's Sven Sundgaard says some parts of the state might even touch 50 degrees. "No arctic outbreaks are in sight," Sundgaard says.

The National Weather Service office in Chanhassen says temperatures throughout January have been 5 to 8 degrees above normal.

Paul Douglas at the Star Tribune shares some fun facts on the weird weather: We've only seen three nights below zero in the Twin Cities this winter, and we've saved about 19 percent on heating bills.

Snow could brush the metro this weekend

Kare 11's Sven Sundgaard says a snowstorm might brush the Twin Cities this weekend, with the southeastern suburbs seeing 1 to 3 inches while just a few flakes dust the northwestern burbs. The National Weather Service in Chanhassen and the Star Tribune's Paul Douglas are bringing us similar forecasts.

A big chill as winter settles in

Dig out the extra layers because the mercury is falling, starting Monday. The Weather Service and local forecasters say temps in the metro will hover around a mere 20 degrees for the next couple of days.

High temperature, humidity to dip slightly

It'll be just a bit cooler Thursday, with a high of about 89 degrees and a tad less humidity in the Twin Cities, down from 93 Wednesday. High humidity and scattered showers are likely this weekend.
