    Enjoy this warm Wednesday while you can, because the rest of the week's forecast is showing high temperatures in the low 50s and upper 40s, with overnight lows in the 30s.
    The Minnesota cold weather rule protects residential customers having difficulty paying their gas bill from having service disconnected from Oct. 15 through April 15, but your heat can be turned off unless you contact your utility company to apply for protection.
