Cool weather + percipiation = snow.
A slight chance of snow showers is in the forecast for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday this week in the St. Cloud area.

I wouldn't be so upset about this if I hadn't been planning to go hunting this weekend. I was hoping that the early antlerless deer season would have provided me with a warmer and more pleasant experience in a stand all day. Typically the first couple weeks of November have this kind of forecast. Mother Nature had something different in mind for this year.
Oh well. We can't control the weather, right? Good luck hunters of deer and hunters of matching mittens as those get pulled out of storage for the season.
