ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) Forecasters say the coldest air so far this season will  move into Minnesota this weekend.

Forecaster Shawn Devinny at the National Weather Service Office in Chanhassen says by Saturday, high temperatures will only be in the teens, with wind chills near or below zero. He says those temperatures are more like you'd see the second week of December.

He says there also a chance the St. Cloud area could see some light snow Thursday night. He says accumulations between a trace and a half-inch are possible, with the potential of one to three inches if the system moves further north.

He says at this point, there's nothing on the horizon weather-wise that will impact travel over the Thanksgiving holiday. He says next week looks "fairly dry and quiet."

Devinny says expect much colder temperatures by Saturday
