Brandon Weatherz: Settling into a quiet stretch

It was cold enough overnight for Hibbing to close out October and kick off November with two daily record lows! It dropped to 4° at 2 am. Now that we’ve put the cold morning behind us, we’ll settle into a quiet and milder stretch that takes us into the weekend.

A breezy southwest wind kicking in today will begin to send milder air into the region, allowing highs to be above freezing in mid-30s. Skies feature a mix of clouds and sun. Tonight will still be chilly with lows in mid-teens to low 20s. By Thursday, highs range from near 40 for much of northwest Wisconsin to 33 by International Falls. Friday sees more communities into the low 40s, including Duluth.

The Minnesota Firearm Season Opener will feature a cool morning with temps ranging rom mid-teens to mid-20s, then highs manage upper 30s to low 40s under partly sunny skies. The next widespread chance for a mix of rain and snow looks to arrive Sunday evening and spill into Monday morning.
