Here is your Tuesday afternoon forecast for October 19, 2021 from KSTP Meteorologist Matt Serwe.

Half of Minnesota will enjoy another warm fall afternoon! A cold front is keeping the northwestern half of the state much cooler with clouds and north winds. A low will ride along that front tonight, spreading scattered rain across most of the state Wednesday. Some storms are possible, and there is a small chance that some storms could produce hail south of the Twin Cities.

Temperatures fall below average once the rain gets out Wednesday night. Frost is likely Thursday night and again Friday night, however we could get our first freeze by Saturday morning. It is a tricky freeze forecast since it will depend on if the clouds clear out at the right time. Allergy sufferers are cheering for clearing!
