Sunny turns alert! Midwest meltdown is on, but this weekend should be great

The Midwest meltdown is officially on this week with temperatures and a forecast that could spiral our 2020/2021 season.

As far north at Lutsen and Mt. Bohemia, temperatures will tickle the mid-40s this weekend into early next week. Near the Twin Cities, temperatures are expected to near 60 degrees. Make sure you go chase that sun this weekend on our Midwest hills!

Two pond skippers wait their turn on a warm, sunny day at Welch Village.

Backyards buried in a foot of hard-packed snow two weeks ago are nearly bare already – a true sign that our true winter is over. Stay tuned, of course, for our “State Tournament snow” and the April blizzard to which we have become accustomed.

Minneapolis-based Meteorologist Cody Matz did a great breakdown on why and how the Midwest spring has become colder due to climate change. Check it out here.

Here’s a look at the high and low temps over the next 5 days across the region: (Source: National Weather Service)
