The abrupt drop in temperatures that arrived with Thanksgiving is really not that big of a deal unless you've had well above normal temperatures and record highs on Wednesday.
Duluth's high temperature of 52 F on November 21st tied the record set in 2006.
Snowfall was generous in northeast Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin on Thursday and Thursday night. Only a few narrow bands of light snow remained in that region late this afternoon.

We'll take moisture in any form when a lot of the state has been very dry the last few months. Unfortunately the severe drought region of southwest Minnesota missed out on precipitation once again.
