Have fun navigating to a location to find out how cool it got overnight. I was curious about the impact of the urban heat island effect when I observed the International Airport had a low of 56 and St. Paul Homan Field had a minimum of 54. Chaska had a low of 49 degrees.
Clearly the sunshine from Wednesday was absorbed and held in the downtown streets and buildings.
The coldest reading I could find this morning was 36 at Grand Marais and Cook. It was 46 degrees as close as Lake Elmo.
Winds pick up for your Friday afternoon and a repeat is in store for Saturday.
