Snow was flying for the first time this season across parts of the Northeast this weekend. This was the view from Plattekill Mountain in New York on Saturday.

Mount Washington Observatory
While light snow was falling across some of the lower elevations in the Northeast this weekend, it was a whiteout at Mount Washington Observatory in New Hampshire at near 6,300ft. At approximately 9am EDT, the winds were gusting to near 110mph with a wind chilly of -15F !!
A large storm system swirling in eastern Canada will continue to keep scattered rain and snow showers in the forecast through the early week time frame. Some of the heaviest snowfall accumulations will be found across the far north and in the highest elevations.
Much of the snow from the weekend has tapered, but there still may be some additional snowfall through the early part of the week across the far north and high elevations.
Mother Nature will have us guessing again this week. Bright afternoon sun returns Monday, but a chilly rain moves in late Tuesday through Wednesday. I could see a few locations across southern Minnesota with 1 to near 2 inch rainfall tallies by midweek!
Drier weather settles in late week before another front plows south of the border late Friday. Temps take another hit this weekend with highs on Saturday struggling to make it into the 50s. I could see a few morning flurries across the northern part of the state again. The Twin Cities might even be close to their first official frost Sunday morning as temperatures fall into the low and mid 30s.
The extended forecast continues to call for warmer than average temps through the end of the month. No Halloween blizzards brewing. No significant cold snaps in sight.
Keep enjoying this mild Fall!
