On Wednesday we were 4 degrees shy of matching the daily high of 41 degrees set back in 2007.
Our Friday will feel fairly average for this time of year with a high around 27 degrees and a chance of some flurries.
We warmed to 40 for the first time this month Monday. Not record heat by any stretch, but a good ten degrees above average for this time of year.
The wind will make if feel below zero Thursday morning. There will be a secondary cold front dropping south as the day progresses. This is the leading edge of the coldest air yet this season.
We have just lived through the driest autumn in Twin Cities history. This goes back over the past 141 years.
November has been dry and warm, so why not end it that way. The last day of the month will be the warmest of the next several days.
On average, November and December are our cloudiest months. We are living up to it these days.
We’ve only received a trace of snow so far in the Twin Cities. That is about 5 inches below average for this time of year. We won’t gain it all back in one storm, but we will see some snow.
We start our Thursday with the coolest air since late March. At least the wind will be lighter, but the teens feel cold.
We escaped the latest storm system without one single flake.
We wrapped up the month of October and will remember it as a warm and dry one.
Another storm system passes early on Friday that will trigger a few spotty showers with a few flakes mixed in up north.
Our temps finally shot up over average Friday with a high of 61 degrees (that’s 5 degrees warmer than average). Lucky for us, the mild air will stay in place right through the weekend.
It is time to say goodbye to the November-like air mass that has been parked over us for the past few days.
We finally received a respectable amount of rain on Wednesday. Many towns enjoyed over half an inch.
