How Much Fell? Here is a list, courtesy of the local Twin Cities National Weather Service, how how much fell. As much as 10-12" caked a few northern suburbs, but most amounts were in the 4-9" range. Quite enough, thank you.

Our sweaty September weather continues through the weekend with feels like temperatures in the low to mid 90s. Dewpoints near 70 degrees will have you glistening even after a fresh shower. Enjoy it while you can (if you like this stuff) because fall-like weather is on the way next week! Check the blog for more details. -Todd Nelson
Weather conditions over the next few days will be reminiscent of the dog days of summer. With high temperatures approaching 90 degrees and dewpoints near 70 degrees, it'll feel more like the mid 90s. The hot, sticky sun will no doubt have you in search of the nearest A/C unit through the weekend. Check the blog for more details. -Todd Nelson
The Dog Days of September limp on, with a heat index in the mid-90s almost every day into Saturday. If you're heading off to the State Fair stay hydrated and take plenty of breaks. Check the blog for more details. -Todd Nelson
Summer hasn't run out of gas, not yet. Daytime highs surge into the 80s into Sunday, possibly Monday - odds are Canadian relief will stall to our northwest, keeping us on the sticky side of a front - and the northern edge of a sprawling heat wave - for roughly the next week. Great fun. A few T-storms are in the forecast, especially northern Minnesota, but with planning (and luck) you may just salvage an OK holiday weekend. On paper.
We salvaged an OK weekend after all, not as warm as we thought though. I'm still wondering (out loud) if a canopy of thick smoke from western wildfires kept us a few degrees cooler. The combination of heat and humidity will make it feel more like July this week, a streak of days ranging from 85-90F. Relief arrives next weekend; right now Sunday looks like the wetter, more volatile day. By Labor Day it will definitely feel like September.
