Slowly Into Fall

Todd's Conservation MN forecast for the Twin Cities and all of central Minnesota

Monday: A mix of clouds and sun with more PM sun, feels like mid October again. High: 57

Tuesday: More sun, a bit milder. High: 60

Wednesday: Plenty of sun and breezy. Indian Summer returns! High: 63

Thursday: What else, bright sunshine. High: 61

Friday: Still September-ish. More blue sky, a few degrees warmer. High: 61

Saturday: More clouds, slight chance of light rain. High: 60

Sunday: Cloudier with a few spotty showers. High 62

Wow, what a strange afternoon. What was that gray coating covering that blue sky that we've come to find so often this month? Sure was strange to have an 'overcast' sky wasn't it?

Interestingly, we've only had two days of rain this month and it only amount to a trace. We've also had several days above normal average temperature, which puts us now around 7 degrees above the monthly average and 0.2 degrees above our warmest October on record thus far. Looking ahead, there appears to be no great chance of accumulating rain this week until maybe the weekend. A slow moving low pressure system, winding up in the Desert Southwest, will churn its way north into the Upper Midwest by late Friday. Saturday and Sunday could turn out to be the first chance of real moisture this month. Other than that, the work week looks quiet. A clipper-like system will scoot across the international border early Wednesday and bring us a few more clouds and some breezier winds, but no rain.

Here's a picture of my little boy Crosby, 15 months old, enjoying the fall weather and the Minnesota Twins inspired corn maze at the 101 Market in Otsego, MN

The transition into fall continues to be slow... we're peering into the crystal ball for any hints of winter, but nothing yet - Enjoy - Todd Nelson
