Enjoying the cooler weather? The first winter storm of the season for parts of the Upper Midwest passed to our south Friday and Saturday, and we've been left with the coolest weather of the season so far in the Twin Cities. While I don't think I have to tell you November has been a warm month, Saturday was only the second day so far this month with an average temperature that was below average.
Don't fret, though, as warmer weather does return this week. After another chilly start this morning, temperatures will climb into the 30s for highs. Clouds will be on the increase as a clipper passes to our north, with the north shore in line for a quick couple inches of snow. Highs will warm back into the 40s for the beginning of the workweek — once again above average.
As we head into the holiday, however, the weather turns turbulent. A cool front will be on the move, and even though uncertainty remains in the overall evolution of the system, rain and snow are likely across the state for Thanksgiving travelers Wednesday and Thursday.
