Summer In September: Mpls Reaches 95 Degrees

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Just when you thought summer was over, Tuesday’s temperatures jumped to 95 degrees in Minneapolis.

It was the thirty-first time temperatures rose into the 90s this year.

Indeed, Minnesota has now entered the fifteenth consecutive month of above average temperatures, and on Tuesday people took advantage by jumping into Lake Calhoun, among other things.

WCCO-TV chief meteorologist Chris Shaffer says Tuesday will likely have been the last day to be in a bathing suit.

“I think this is probably the end,” he said.

He added that fewer hours of daylight and the angle at which sunlight now hits the state contribute to the cooling in temperatures.

Wednesday is slated to have highs in the 70s.
