After a long run of mostly-beautiful weather right into November, we now start the transition into winter, says D-N-R Climatologist Pete Boulay:

“It was eventual that the weather would change….  There’s a storm system coming which will promise rain for a lot of the state, maybe even some snow up north.  And really, that’s par for the course for November.”

Boulay says the Climate Prediction Center puts equal chances in Minnesota for above- or below-normal temperatures in December, January and February.  He says there’s a better chance for above-normal precipitation in northeast Minnesota into Wisconsin.
