Our late October storm system delivered as advertised, and then some.
High winds and big waves pounded the shoreline of Lake Superior.
Winds reached severe thunderstorm criteria gusts 58 mph in Alexandria, Minn.
Wind advisories continue until 6 p.m. for most of Minnesota. Gusts to 50 mph are possible for Tuesday.
Cold now; 60 Saturday?
Temperatures in the 30s and 40s are back. But timing looks good for a Saturday warmup. Highs may push 60 degrees in the Twin Cities Saturday afternoon.
The longer-range maps look scary cold for Halloween. Early indications favor temperatures in the 20s and 30s in the days surrounding Halloween this year. So far it looks mostly dry.
