Brandon Weatherz: A welcomed quiet stretch ahead
A bitter chill has returned for the coldest morning we’ve seen since around Christmas, so you’ll want to bundle yourself and kids up more than you’ve had to recently. Temps heading out the door range from a few degrees above zero to teens below. Areas of freezing fog have set up overnight, particularly in north central Minnesota. Be mindful of areas of poor visibility and potential icy spots for the morning commute. Fog and low clouds may persist through the morning, then sunshine takes over this afternoon. Temperatures rise to upper teens to mid-20s.
We can count on similar weather conditions tonight into tomorrow. That means temps falling back to single digits above and below zero, and patchy freezing fog that will linger Saturday morning before sunshine eventually wins out. A seasonable and quiet stretch takes us through the weekend. Next week will continue the trend for the most part, but with more cloud cover. We still don’t have our next widespread accumulating snow event on the horizon. A slight chance for snow does arrive Wednesday and Thursday.
