7 Day Forecast 7 Day Forecast

Good morning and happy fall!

The last week of summer sure felt like it!

For only the fourth time this entire summer, we managed to string together seven consecutive days when temperatures reached or exceeded 80-degrees.

The cooler weather arrived on schedule on Sunday with lots of clouds and a few passing showers. It sure felt like fall!

Well, fall actually started earlier this morning at 2:50 and today will be a stunning fall day!

Plenty of sunshine will return to the Twin Cities along with light winds and pleasant temperatures.

The cooler air will move along quickly and by Tuesday afternoon, we will likely be flirting with afternoon temperatures approaching 80-degrees once again.

This time however, the warm 80’s will not last.

An area of thunderstorms will form tomorrow evening and move into the state bringing a cool change our way once again.

A few of the storms may be severe Tuesday evening up through about 10 pm, so stay tuned for updates.

The main threat with the area of storms this time around is for possible hail and strong winds.

Wednesday will bring a return of refreshing northwesterly winds along with seasonably cool afternoon temperatures in the 60’s.

The rest of the week looks rather cool as well.

There are no more eight straight 80-degree days in sight!

Have a great Monday and enjoy the sun’s return!
