After a Week in the 50's Snow is Back in St. Cloud's Forecast

Since Friday St. Cloud has set four record high temperatures, but Tuesday may have been the end of this 60-degree weather.

St. Cloud State University Professor of Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences, Bob Weisman, says February is about to strike back this weekend. And if you have gotten use to this April like weather, you may need to break out your winter jacket once again. Temperatures are expected to drop into the 20’s and snow has made reappearance in the forecast.

Weisman says the U.S. forecast model predicts the oncoming snow storm will pass to the south of St. Cloud, only dropping two to four inches in central Minnesota between early Friday and through the weekend, but southern Minnesota cities like Marshall and Mankato could get up to a foot of snow.

Rep. Tom Emmer To Hold Town Hall Meeting in Sartell

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - U.S Rep. Tom Emmer is heading to his Minnesota district for his first town hall meeting with constituents since President Donald Trump took office.

Emmer hosts the meeting Wednesday evening in Sartell. His chief of staff, David FitzSimmons, released a statement in advance calling for a "productive and healthy" conversation.

Some town halls held in recent days by congressional Republicans around the country have been very harsh and loud, with strong criticism of plans to repeal the Affordable Care Act and of Trump's executive order on immigration.

Emmer is the first of his Minnesota GOP colleagues to hold an in-person town hall. He was an early and vocal supporter of Trump during the campaign.

Facebook Twitter

02/14/2017 - 4:00 AM

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The man who admitted last year that he abducted and killed Jacob Wetterling in 1989 will not have to pay restitution to his victims.

A federal judge ruled Tuesday that Danny Heinrich won't pay restitution, after the government told the court that no restitution was owed. Heinrich is serving 20 years in federal prison for child pornography. As part of a plea deal on that count, he confessed to kidnapping, molesting and killing 11-year-old Jacob, though he was not charged in the boy's murder.

He led authorities to Jacob's remains in central Minnesota last fall, ending a mystery that haunted the state for nearly three decades.

Jacob's abduction gained national attention and led to changes in sex offender registry laws.

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The board of Minnesota State Colleges and Universities has selected former St. Cloud State provost to become interim chancellor after rejecting three finalists.

Despite an extensive search, system chair Michael Vekich said Thursday he didn't believe the board found the right candidate among the finalists to be the system's next chancellor.

Instead, the board unanimously chose former St. Cloud State provost Devinder Malhotra to serve as interim chancellor until a permanent one is found. Malhotra also once served as interim president of Metropolitan State University.

Chancellor Steven Rosenstone plans to retire at the end of July. The system has about 400,000 students at Minnesota's two-year colleges and regional universities.

ANNANDALE, Minn. (AP) - A real estate developer who demolished the Minnesota home of the man who killed Jacob Wettlerling in 1989 says he is giving the vacant lot to the city of Annandale.

Developer Tim Thone said Tuesday the city has agreed not to develop the quarter-acre lot for at least a decade. He stipulated that any proceeds from the sale of the land be donated to the Annandale Police Department.
In December, Thone bought Danny Heinrich's former home in Annandale, about 50 miles northwest of Minneapolis, so he could destroy it. Last year, Heinrich admitted to kidnapping, sexually assaulting and killing the 11-year-old boy and was sentenced to 20 years in prison for child pornography.
Thone tells the St. Paul Pioneer Press he hopes donating the land will help the Wetterling family deal with the crime.
