Uh Oh! AGW Alert - Frost in Minnesota in August

Call Uncle Al and ask him to go easy on us. He's killing us with that freeze gun of his. Those poor folks in the upper midwest will have to turn the heat on tonight. Damn, now the price for oil and gas is going to spike again.

Up North may see patchy frost tonight

Here's some news you probably hoped you wouldn't hear for another four months.

The National Weather Service says areas of northeast Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin could see patchy frost this weekend. That's right, patchy frost in August.

The weather agency says clear skies could allow temperatures to dip into the low to mid-30s late tonight into early Monday.

Meteorologist Roman Berdes says an unusual cold-air mass from Canada will bring lower temperatures, but warmer air from the central Midwest should replace it by Monday.

Berdes says these temperatures are uncommon but not unheard of. He says those areas saw temperatures in the 20s at this point in 2004.

In the Milwaukee area, today's forecast calls for a high of 75 today and a low tonight of 54.
