Monday was the comfortable one with low humidity and temperatures peaking below average in the 70s. Tuesday will be the average one with highs climbing into the low 80s with a southeast wind blowing 10-15 mph.
We are locked in cool, northwest flow. These temps are average for around April 20 — not late-May.
We have an upper-level area of low pressure positioned over the Dakotas to thank for this dreary and cool start to the weekend!
It had been nine days since we last felt the 70s. Tuesday’s high of 73 cracked that streak and brought many smiles around town.
It will be a little cooler than average this weekend, and try to remember what April showers bring.
We are still suffering from drought conditions across the state and into western Wisconsin. So, any rainfall at this point is welcome rainfall.
It was all about the strong wind , and we finally received some much needed rain Friday.
It could be worse. It could be a snowy Easter. Or a bitter cold one. Instead the greatest weather factor will be the wind.
We are living weather history once again. It looks like this will be the warmest March on record.
The steering winds are beginning to send some actual precipitation our way. It has been a tame winter to date, with 18 inches of snow and only three nights below zero here in the Twin Cities.
It has been a mild and dry February, and I don’t see any big changes in the near future.
It looks like the big storm that dumped more than four feet of snow on parts of Colorado will miss us to the south.
We have been melting away our snow with temperatures well above average. The wind is quite light, and that allows the low-level moisture to hang around in the form of fog.
We finally have some snow coming our way. It isn’t a large storm, but we will take what we can get this winter.
We tied a daily record high of 49 degrees in the Twin Cities Monday. The previous high mark was set back in 2002.
