A storm system racing across southern Canada will help boost high temps to near 15 degree above average levels Friday. A cooler wind develops Saturday as temps settle back to near normal levels for late October. The wind picks up out of the south again on Halloween Monday allowing temps to surge back into the 60s.

We dry out a little Thursday with a few peeks of sun. Mild winds develop on Friday in advance of another storm system that will track across southern Canada, which will allow temperatures to warm to near 70 degrees across the southern part of the state! Check the blog for more details. -Todd Nelson
The pitter-patter of an October rain lulled us to sleep Tuesday night. Waking up to puddles Wednesday, it's hard not to think about how wet it's been this year. Prior to Tuesday's rain, the Twin Cities was 7 inches above normal precipitation since January 1st. Check the blog for more details. -Todd Nelson
Wet leaf puddles will be bountiful later Tuesday as a waterlogged storm system blows in from the west. Latest model runs suggest nearly 1 inch of rain or more across the southern part of the state by midday Wednesday. I could even see a few wet snowflakes mixing in across the Arrowhead and northern Wisconsin by early Wednesday morning. Check the blog for more details. -Todd Nelson
Mother Nature will have us guessing again this week. Bright afternoon sun returns Monday, but a chilly rain moves in late Tuesday through Wednesday. I could see a few locations across southern Minnesota with 1 to near 2 inch rainfall tallies by midweek! Check the blog for more details. -Todd Nelson
