The weather service forecasts a high near 46 degrees Thursday, 40 degrees Friday, and temperatures in the 30s Saturday and Sunday, with lows in the 20s Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Most of the Twin Cities area should see less than an inch beginning Monday evening, but as much as eight or more inches is possible in northern Minnesota, according to the National Weather Service.

"This cold and windy weather is likely to stay in place for a time, perhaps with some brief milder interludes in the south, with frontal systems bringing a mix of rain sleet and snow", the Met Office confirmed.

Temperatures could rise by as few as six degrees for a partly sunny, 48-degree high Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.

"It's going to turn much colder again towards the end of the week, and by Thursday into Friday we'll be seeing some snow, some ice and some very strong and cold northerly winds", said Steven Keates, a meteorologist at the Met Office.

There is a slight chance of overnight showers, increasing to an 80 percent chance of occasional showers throughout the day on Tuesday. Highest temperatures of 3 to 6 degrees with light westerly winds, gradually backing southerly.
