Currently in the Twin Cities — January 26, 2023

The weather, currently.

Some sunshine, cooler Thursday

Enjoy some rare sunshine Thursday between our two clipper systems. We should see at least partly cloudy skies Thursday morning into the early afternoon before clouds increase yet again ahead of more snow Thursday night. It’ll also be cooler Thursday with morning lows in the single digits and afternoon highs in the teens. Expect another 1 to 2 inches of snow Thursday night. The REAL cold arrives Friday. Temps will drop from near 30 early in the morning to the teens by evening. Winds will howl at 10-30 mph. We’ll slip below zero Saturday night with wind chills approaching -20°F over the weekend at times.

What you can do, currently.

Climate change is making wildfires worse, damaging our communities and the environment. Not only do wildfires hurt our forests and put people in danger — burn scars can result in harsher floods — like we’ve seen in recent weeks across California.

Our partner Wren supports efforts to prevent wildfires by removing flammable, dead wood and turning it into biochar — removing carbon in the process. Join Wren to start funding climate solutions today, new users get 20 native trees planted for free on us.
