Check the data at this website:

The data represents climate records at Cedar, MN, Anoka County. Minor adjustments may be needed to reflect frost date averages at your particular location. In any case, the graph shows there is a 10% chance that frost will occur at Cedar later than May 25. Conversely there is a 90% chance that frost will occur at Cedar later than April 22. Accordingly frost chances ascend or descend between those dates.

Typically, Twin Cities area growers put frost sensitive plants outdoors sometime during the last 10 days of May.
