First Snowflakes Possible Saturday Morning
The National Weather Service says our first chance of snowflakes is coming Saturday morning in St. Cloud.
The official NWS forecast says, "A slight chance of rain and snow showers before 9 AM in the Saint Cloud area." That's the first mention of the S-word since early spring.
Snow or no-snow, it's going to be a frosty few mornings across the area, with lows around 30 for our first real freezing temps of the season.
Low Temperature Forecast the Next Few Mornings
- FRI AM in St. Cloud: 32°
- SAT AM in St. Cloud: 35°
- SUN AM in St. Cloud: 31°
- MON AM in St. Cloud: 36°
The National Weather Service adds:
Cool temperatures will remain in place through the weekend then moderate during the upcoming workweek. Few chances for precipitation during this time, specifically scattered rain showers across the entire area Saturday followed by isolated rain showers north of I-94 Tuesday.
Normal lows this time of year are in the low 40s, with average highs around 63.
Before Saturday's possible flakes, most locations will see the coldest night of the season tonight with lows in the upper 20s to mid 30s. Bundle up buttercup.
