Brace yourself for the cold that is about to come. On Tuesday the temperature will be steadily dropping with highs likely being reached in the early morning. This cold air originates north of the Arctic Circle and will be modifying as it drifts south into the Twin Cities. At least the air temperatures will be staying above zero degree Fahrenheit!
December 2 is the average date for the first high temperature in the teens. Last year the first teen high was on January 10th. The extended long range outlook indicates an extended period of below freezing conditions. With the freeze/thaw cycles ending the trails conditions will greatly improve and be more conducive for riding. The air temperature will struggle to get back above freezing through mid-December.
Little in the way of snow will fall this week. Light snow will develop Wednesday night with a better chance of accumulation this weekend.
