Snow this weekend; coldest Halloween in four years on tap for Tuesday

A hard-charging cold front will bring the metro area's first freeze and measurable snowfall of the season this weekend, and will make for the chilliest Halloween in four years.

But don't worry, nothing sinister like the 1991 blizzard that dropped 8.2 inches of snow on Halloween night — and 28.4 inches over three days — is on tap. Just light accumulation Saturday into Sunday and breezy winds Tuesday to accompany goosebump-inducing cold for those heading out for trick-or-treating.

"Bundle up," said meteorologist Caleb Grunzke in the National Weather Service's office in Chanhassen. "The good news [for Tuesday] is precipitation chances are low."
