Minnesota’s worst drought in years is bringing back some bad memories.
Some snow is expected in Northern Minnesota on Thursday, though a lot of us hope winter is still a couple months away.
WCCO-TV was awarded 12 Emmys at the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS), Upper Midwest Regional Emmy Awards gala held Saturday at the State Theater in Minneapolis.
Just when you thought summer was over, Tuesday’s temperatures jumped to 95 degrees in Minneapolis.
September is usually among our most rare months for grassfires, but firefighters battled one in Maplewood Monday afternoon. And a 400-acre fire is currently burning north of Bemidji.
Minnesotans know a bit about tornadoes. We average 27 a year, but in 2011 we had 113. As Hurricane Isaac bears down on New Orleans, we wondered. Which is worse: a hurricane or a tornado?
Last week, WCCO anchors competed in basketball, beach volleyball and badminton as part of the Anchor Olympics. On Thursday, it was track day, and Chris Shaffer and Frank Vascellaro got a much needed lesson on running sprints.
Many parts of Minnesota and Wisconsin are dealing with drought. We are fine around the Twin Cities, but other counties could use a drink.
This is a question I field quite often at WCCO. It has been hot — the second warmest July on record — and humid this summer.

It has been very pleasant around here lately with temps above average but not stifling hot like last week. Our dew points are much better too, so the air is warm but not humid. That will change.
It’s the time of year for pruning, mowing, cutting and planting. For some, there’s no limit on how much time they’ll spend perfecting their yards.
