True, it's not actually winter yet . . . but it sure does look and feel like it today here in Minnesota.
Noted Star Tribune meteorologist Paul Douglas earlier today:
November and December are the darkest months; deepening cold accompanied by unusually gray and cloudy days. A double-shot of gloom for most. Ironically, January tends to be colder, but sunnier, as dry Canadian air finally sweeps away the crud.
Last night's clipper left behind a residue of snow and ice – leave extra time for the morning commute. This early cold wave lingers into early next week, with temperatures 15-20F colder than average.
Yeah, Finn's face says it all.
