We're in store for another warmer weekend with temps near 40 degrees


We have yet another blast of above-average temperatures to round out this work week.

Mild, Pacific air will flood the region Friday ahead of our next clipper system. Most locations will see highs well into the 30s both Friday and Saturday – perfect for another event-filled weekend, which includes the St. Paul Winter Carnival, Red Bull Crashed Ice, Brainerd's Jaycees Ice Fishing Extravaganza, and the Beargrease sled dog race.

Friday appears to be the warmest day of the forecast, with highs expected to reach into the upper 30s for the Twin Cities. Many locations in southern Minnesota may even top the lower 40s, once again.

Ironically, a year ago Friday, the high in Minneapolis was 2 degrees with a morning low of -17 degrees. Ouch.

Some parts of Minnesota could see a wintry mix Friday morning, which could slick up some roads for the morning commute. But everything is expected to thaw out in the afternoon.

Snow possible Sunday

We may see some snow on Sunday, and the potential for accumulating snow is certainly possible. However, with any clipper, the forecast completely depends on the storm track.

Latest model runs put the clipper slicing through central Minnesota. This scenario would put the heaviest snow band along and north of Interstate 94. A more-southerly track would produce substantially more snow for the metro, though. So, stay tuned.
