It’s an almost balmy day here in Edina with a temperature of 32 degrees. But get set for the major drop in temperature that’s set to hit the area by tomorrow. From 32 today to 0 tomorrow is the forecast. Today is a great day then to get outdoors and spend the day at the park!

The skating is fine right now at Centennial Lakes Park, on all 10 acres of the lake. Don’t feel like skating? The park offers Norwegian ice sleds for loads of winter fun.

Afterward, sit by the fire in the warming house with a steaming cup of hot chocolate.
