Community More snow later in week M a Meteorologist better organized and bringing some heavier snowfall totals later in the week and into the weekend. Keep in mind that highways continue to be slick at times with the recent snowfall, some melting taking place, and then that mois- ture refreezing later in the evening and overnight as temperatures tumble once again. Do slow down and watch for those slick spots. Have a great upcoming weekend. Weather history: On this date in 2011 very mild air was in place for this time of the year as daytime high temperatures reached the 40s and 50s. Weather fact: Indian Sum- mer "is a heat wave that occurs in the autumn." It refers to a period of "above-normal temperatures, accompanied by dry and hazy conditions, usually after there has been a killing frost." It can occur "between late September and mid November, though the term is used as widely as early September through January." MN AT A GLANCE: Moorhead Low 10 High 24 Duluth Low 7 High 23 Weather: It was a cold week- end across the state of Minnesota. Alexandria hit a cool high on Sun- day of just one degree above zero. Thankfully, a warm-front arrived on Monday, Dec. 16, as we finally started to warm up once again, as daytime high tempera- tures were back into the 20s and even some lower 30s. That frontal boundary sys- tem, however, did bring some light snow with the arrival of the warm- front. Many spots across Minne- sota picked up a couple of inches of snowfall on Monday, with another one to two inches of snowfall Mon- day night with the second wave. Drier air and mild tempera- tures were found across most of the Upper Midwest by Tuesday. Daytime highs once again were in the 20s for most of the Central and West-Central Minnesota. The mild temperatures should only be with us for one more day on Wednesday before a cold front arrives, bringing that chillier air and some snow returning by Thursday. At this stage, it looks like two to four inches of snow is pos- sible later in the week, but there is potential for this system becoming Central Minn.
