The last five days of February will give us below normal temps, but that will be followed by a start to March that looks to be warmer than average.

Temperatures moderate back above normal this weekend, and look to remain above normal into the first two weeks of March.

The three-month outlook for March, April, and May for Minnesota calls for near normal temperatures, with a slight chance of above normal precipitation.

The average high in St. Cloud on March 1st is 33°. That climbs to 48° on April 1st, 64° on May 1st, and 74° by the end of May -- so that gives you a good idea of what 'near normal' temps look like.
