Some rough weather whipped through Minnesota on Thursday afternoon, causing sudden wind gusts that downed trees, disrupted travel and scared two window washers who were outside a Minneapolis skyscraper.

In the Twin Cities on Thursday afternoon, a cold front blew winds of about 50 mph through the area, knocking down trees and disrupting travel.

The wind slammed two window washers into a window in a downtown Minneapolis office tower. The window washers suffered minor injuries.

The sudden burst of wind came on the leading edge of a cold front that dropped the temperature nearly 20 degrees from the high 70s to the high 50s.


Wet weather was expected to continue to the west as well.

The National Weather Service forecast minor flooding in the Fargo-Moorhead area.
