The melting on Tuesday could lead to some fog, especially from the Interstate 94 corridor and points north. This could have some implications on how warm things will get on Wednesday. Currently, it's looking like the high in the Twin Cities could approach 40 degrees, while southwestern Minnesota will climb into the mid-to-upper 40s. Northern Minnesota will be in the mid-30s. Areas that hang onto the fog into the lunch hour will be cooler, however.
