The winds were strong enough to topple trees and down power lines across parts of the Twin Cities Metro, which left thousands without power for several hours.
Strong Winds Again Today
The NOAA image below shows the sustained winds expected at 1pm Monday. The wind barbs are from the northwest and valued at 20mph to 25mph. Wind gusts could be up around 30mph to 40mph again, so get ready for another blustery day.
Nearly 20 Degrees Cooler Today
The NOAA image below shows the temperature forecast at 1pm Monday. Many locations around central and northern Minnesota will have a tough time reaching the upper 50's for high temperatures and with winds as strong as they'll be, it'll feel like the 40's for most of the day there.
