This weekend: Set clocks back; sunnier skies in forecast


A reminder: Daylight saving time ends this weekend – turn clocks back one hour when you go to bed Saturday night.

What are you going to do with all that extra time? It's not a bad weekend to catch up on last-minute fall yard projects, before the threat of a little snow early next week, forecasters say.

There's no rain in the forecast for the Twin Cities this weekend, with clearing skies Saturday and partly sunny skies on Sunday, WCCO reports. Highs in the metro will be in the upper 40s Saturday, with a high of 52 on Sunday.

A little sunshine would be a nice change of pace – 26 of 31 days in October were cloudy in the metro, KARE 11 reports. The area got .63 inches of rain, and a trace of snow fell three times during the month, KARE says.

The highest temperatures this weekend will be in the west-central to south-central part of the state, the National Weather Service says.

A chance of rain will reappear in the metro on Monday, with rain or snow possible Tuesday and Tuesday night, the weather service says.

A number of factors make November a particularly difficult month for forecasters to get it right, MPR's Paul Huttner writes in the Updraft blog. But that said, the weather maps get "more chaotic" by mid-November, Huttner says. Winter's coming.
