Monday will be another hot day with highs in the 80s statewide. Tuesday will again be warm ahead of a cold front that will touch off showers and thunderstorms late Tuesday with much cooler air behind it.
It was an incredibly hot day for the first of October. Highs were in the 90s across central and southern Minnesota Sunday.
It’s the latest we’ve ever been above 90 degrees in the Twin Cities and a new all-time record high temperature for October.
Warmth continues but cooler air coming
Monday will be close to record warmth again. The record high is 89 degrees and we will likely be back in the upper 80s in the Twin Cities and across much of southern Minnesota. A few places in the west could hit 90 again.

Tuesday will still see highs in the 80s across southern Minnesota with partly cloudy skies.
A cold front will touch off showers and thunderstorms later in the day in western Minnesota Tuesday and that activity will track east overnight Tuesday night.
Behind the front, Wednesday will be considerably cooler with highs in the 70s south to just 50s north.
Friday will be our coolest day yet with highs just in the 50s and 40s.
That will set us up for a chilly night Friday night. It could be the first time the temp drops below 40 in the Twin Cities early Saturday.
