Halloween weekend bookended by fall warmth

- Ready for some more above average temperatures??  Yea, I thought so.  Yes, it will continue to be fairly mild around here over the next few days.  A warm front will stretch northward through the state of Minnesota on Friday helping temperatures climb well above average for much of the area. While the clouds may hang around for many of us, which could potentially impact highs, gusty southwest winds should be more than enough to jettison temperatures into the 60s… which is a solid 10 to 15 degrees above our Thursday highs.  IF we can muster up enough sunshine, then low 70s would be doable on this late October day!

The true fall style warmth will vacate for the weekend unfortunately as cooler and more seasonable air returns with clouds hanging around much of the area... and even a few showers will be possible Saturday.  While it may feel cool, even highs in the 50s this time of year is around or even slightly above average.

But by Halloween Monday, a secondary push of warm air will shove northward and land in Minnesota.  While this potential warm up isn’t looking as impressive OR as much of a sure thing as Friday does, the warm bubble of air could easily encompass the southern half of the state, including much of the metro, and push temperatures back into the 60s.  As it stands right now, this COULD be the warmest Halloween for the Twin Cities since 2000!  We will just have to wait and see…
