Warm-up on its way; winter appears to be over


WILLMAR — Temperatures this weekend should help get rid of that spring snow that fell Thursday in west central Minnesota, and the warmer air will continue into next week.

“We’re going to have a nice warm-up here right into Wednesday of next week,” according to Tony Zaleski, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Chanhassen.

A storm system in the north might cool temperatures a bit after Wednesday, but not very much.
