Unusually hot summer has led to recent storms and flooding in SE Minnesota but mother nature reminds us of exactly where we live this Thursday morning. Some of Northern Minnesota could see the first frost of the season Tonight into Tomorrow morning according to the NWS in Grand Forks ND.
"SHORT TERM...(Today and tonight) Issued at 414 AM CDT Wed Sep 5 2018
The surface high is centered over southern Saskatchewan early this morning, where temperatures there are in the lower 30s already. Clear skies are moving into portions of Towner and Cavalier counties, with temperatures at Cando and Langdon in the lower 40s. Should easily see these areas pit out in the upper 30s with some patchy frost. There are some thicker areas of clouds yet, but expect to see abundant sunshine today. It will stay on the cool side with fairly low wind speeds.
Challenge tonight will be the frost potential once again. With the surface high shifting into Minnesota by morning, the best chances for frost should be across portions of northwest Minnesota. Would think the traditional chilly spots from eastern Marshall County, down through Red Lake, Pennington, and east Polk could see areas of frost. Portions of the northern and central Red River Valley should be chilly too. Will take a closer look at this through the day today."
Remember it does not have to hit 32 degrees to get frost on the ground.
