Most of the Midwest and Northern Plains are wondering what time of the year it is?

After a bitterly cold winter and spring, some parts of the country are wondering if autumn is settling in early. The past few days across the Midwest have been cool for mid-July with highs running as cold as 15° below average. This is due to cold Canadian air working it's way into the country as low pressure has settled itself near the Great Lakes.

Minneapolis-Saint Paul, Minnesota's high was 77° on Wednesday. That was only 7° below the average but the high was only 65° on Monday. A nice 19° below the average high, ouch! International Falls was only 60° back on Monday but today they got up to 75°, still below the normal of 78°.

But it has not been the highs that are making it seem more fall like. The overnight lows have flirted in freezing in some rural areas of northern Minnesota. Here is just how cold it got in some major towns in the pat of the country:
