Cold Weather Returns 23 Nov 15

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A balmy November has given way to reality in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Lows dipped below zero in southwestern Wisconsin. Darlington reported an overnight low of 4 degrees below zero.

Madison saw highs only in the mid-20s Sunday.

The low in Hutchinson Sunday morning was 15 degrees.

National Weather Service meteorologist Sean Miller says it’s not unusual to see colder temperatures once snow is on the ground. A wintry storm dumped 18 inches of snow on Beloit, nearly 7 inches on Milwaukee and over 4 inches on Madison.

In Minneapolis, the temperature bottomed out at 17 degrees just before 7 a.m. Sunday.

Ross Carlyon of the National Weather Service in Chanhassen says after the warm start to November, the sudden temperature change makes it seem “really cold.” Highs Sunday are expected to reach only 30 in Minneapolis.
