Northwest Minnesota could see temperatures drop into the 30s early Thursday, prompting warnings from the National Weather Service.

Meteorologists issued a frost advisory that will last from 4 to 7 a.m. Thursday for Minnesota counties in the Herald's coverage area, including Kittson, Roseau, Lake of the Woods and counties, as well as the west sides of both Polk and Marshall counties. Those areas could see lows between 33 and 36 degrees, according to the advisory.

Pennington, Red Lake, and the east sides of Polk and Marshall counties could see temperatures below freezing, and a freeze warning has been issued for those areas during the same time as the frost advisory, according to the weather service.

No snow is in the forecast.

Grand Forks is forecast to it a low of 38 degrees overnight, but lows for the rest of the week should creep up into the mid-50s, the weather service said. Expect highs to remain in the mid-70s through Sunday, meteorologists said.
