Minnesota weather: Chilly start on Saturday before weekend warm up

After a frigid past few days, Saturday will start off chilly but temperatures will steadily warm throughout the day as part of the big weekend warm up.

The high on Friday stayed in the single digits with feels like temperatures well below zero. Temperatures will skyrocket this weekend and into next week thanks to a warm front pushing into Minnesota from a westerly flow. 

It’ll be a great weekend to get outdoors and do some fun winter activities. The weather will be mild with patches of sun and no expected precipitation.
