Welcome back winter: Cold temps and snow expected through the weekend

Colder-than-normal temps expected into next weekend.

We had tornadoes and ice is leaving the lakes, but winter isn't over just yet.

The forecast shows colder-than-normal temperatures into next week, including below-zero wind chills Friday morning, the National Weather Service says.

That's not the case for northern Minnesota though, which could see wind chills from 25-40 below zero between 9 p.m. Thursday and 9 a.m. Friday, the wind child advisory says. The coldest temperatures there are expected around 6 a.m. Friday.

Highs through Wednesday will be in the teens and 20s across the state. The normal high for Minneapolis on March 10 is 38, while the average high for Duluth is 32.

Along with these cold temperatures comes the chance for some snow. Southern Minnesota – not including the Twin Cities – could see 1-3 inches of snow on Friday night. Then a second round of snow is possible Sunday into Monday.

Here's what the National Weather Service is thinking as of Thursday morning:
