The snowfall registers in the 6" (152mm) to 10" (254mm) statewide with snow cover ubiquitous on the ground. The trees show bare limbs as the fall foliage is past its peak by mid-November, and the conditions cool down rapidly.
The average high temperatures are in the cold zone of 35°F (1.7°C) to 42°F (5.6°C), while nights drop below freezing to register in the 18°F (-7.8°C) to 29°F (-1.7°C) range. Pipestone in the south registers between 21°F (-6.1°C) to 41°F (5°C), while Grand Rapids in the north is between 20°F (-6.7°C) to 37°F (2.8°C). The evenings are windy and chilly by the second half of November. Watch out for animals, particularly deer and moose crossing the roads. The growing season is over as the soil freezes by late autumn.
