Spectacular Labor Day Weather - Warming Up Through Midweek

I give a big yawn to the weather across the state for Labor Day - but that's not a bad thing! Mainly sunny skies are expected with highs ranging from the 60s to low 80s across Minnesota, with mid-70s in the metro. - D.J. Kayser

Streak of Sunny, Comfortable Days

September 2, 2022
Welcome to San Diego (north) with a winning streak of sunny days into next week. I see no rain for at least the next 7-9 days, as much as we still need a few good dousings. Expect free A/C into Labor Day with comfortable nights (50s) and daytime highs in the mid-70s. While much of inland California sizzles above 110F. All-time September records will fall in the days ahead. Check the blog for more details. -Todd Nelson

The Unspoken Benefits of Arctic Air

It's partly-Nanook out there, and a reinforcing clipper turns on a firehose of cold air in it's wake late-week, but I don't see week after week of negative numbers. Pacific-flavored air lures the mercury near 32F from this weekend into mid-February. Check the blog for more details. -Todd Nelson

Monday will be one of those misleading days as you look outside - yes, it'll be sunny, but it'll be bitterly cold as highs struggle to make it above zero. Teens return after Monday, though, for much of the rest of the work week - and 20s look to be in the picture by next weekend! - D.J. Kayser
