    Drastic Changes in Store for Minneapolis This Week

    Mild and showery weather early this week in Minneapolis will give way to much colder and even snowy weather for communities farther north by late in the week.

    A warm front pushing north across the area early this week will bring spotty showers, as well as breezy and mild conditions. Highs will be in the lower 70s, about 15 degrees above normal, in Minneapolis on Tuesday and Wednesday.

    However, big changes will arrive by Thursday as a storm plowing into the West Coast with heavy rain and snow shifts east. A steadier, heavier rain across much of Minnesota will keep temperatures way down from previous days.


    Across northern Minnesota, temperatures will fall even lower, allowing for the potential of snow by late Thursday or Friday. International Falls and Duluth are among the areas that may receive some snow.
