Happy Saturday!

The roller coaster of fall temps continues! We had a hard freeze last evening in the metro and nearly all of MN–so if you left any plants outside, they may be in trouble. Even though we got cold, and remain cold today, we start to moderate tomorrow through Monday.  Monday will be a warmer day. This time of year, usually the warmer days are quite windy also, so keep that in mind. Some parts of SW MN could be in the mid 70’s to near 80 on Monday. In MSP, upper 60’s to low 70’s look possible. Some indications are that it could be even warmer. Read more

Two storm chances next week–changes likely in forecast!!


The models have been hinting at two large storms next week–or, what we are really seeing is the likelihood of one large storm in multiple waves, split up like two separate storms.   These are generally impulses that spin up off of the main low pressure center—so we usually see multiple waves.  This is fairly common of large storms of this nature.

The ECMWF runs yesterday were pulling the brunt of the storm over MN near Halloween, with a preliminary part of the storm on Tuesday.  Now, the normally reliable ECMWF seems to pull it further away on Halloween and after.
