Get ready to ride the temperature roller coaster in the next few days Minnesota.
Minnesota enjoyed another spectacular early Autumn day Thursday. We’re riding the northern edge of a summery air mass across the central Plains into the Dakotas.
Friday brings a cold front and cooler northwest breezes. A band of scattered showers rides the front through eastern Minnesota Friday. The most favorable timing window for scattered rains in the Twin Cities and eastern Minnesota favors the midday and early afternoon hours.
NOAA’s NAM 3 km resolution model loop below paints the showers riding eastward between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. Friday.
Highs Friday will hover in the 60s across Minnesota.
Saturday brings similar temperatures with plenty of sunshine.
Sunday warm front
Next week brings another shot of late summer-like temperatures. Sunday will be the warmer day of the weekend.
The warmth is likely to linger through the last days of September. Highs may reach 80 degrees again from the Twin Cities westward next week.
The steamy summer of ‘21 is starting to linger like an endless summer of ‘21.
But Minnesotans know it can’t last forever.
