Late summer frost advisory

* 27 F. at Embarrass, MN Sunday morning - coldest in the state (possibly the coldest anywhere in the lower 48 states!) 32 degree low at International Falls, Ely, Silver Bay and Crane Lake.

* 36 F. reported Sunday morning at Little Falls and Benson, 35 at Hayward, Wisconsin.

* Frost advisory in effect north/east of Lake Mille Lacs for Sunday night. Combination of dry, Canadian air, clear skies and diminishing winds should create ideal conditions for a rare, late-summer frost for parts of northeastern MN and northern Wisconsin.

* Monday morning record low of 40 degrees in the Twin Cities in danger of being broken.

* St. Cloud record for August 31: 33 F. set in 1974

* 62 degree "high" at Eau Claire, WI Saturday - sets a record for the coolest August 29 on record.

* Dry week shaping up - showers/T-storms remain just south and west of Minnesota through the period.

* It's early but right now next Saturday appears to be the best outdoor day of the Labor Day weekend. Scattered showers and T-storms likely Sunday and Monday, not a steady rain, but a few hours of showers possible each day.

* Highs mostly in the mid to upper 70s every day this week, near 80 by the weekend (with higher humidity levels).
