The coldest air since early May has arrived! Temps dipped into the 20's Tuesday morning thus marking the first hard freeze of the season. Plants have now temporarily halted growth until Spring 2014.
An extended period of dry yet cooler-than-average conditions are expected as northwest flow dominates our weather this week. Southerly winds begin to develop over the weekend which will help to moderate temperatures.

While the first flakes of the season were spotted in the Twin Cities no measurable snow was reported in the metro. Central Minnesota, however, had a slushy snow accumulation of 1-2 inches. The band-aid has officially been ripped off!
Weather computer models hint at a storm developing in the central U.S. the middle of next week. This is still a ways out but, there is a possibility of this storm affecting the Midwest...maybe in the form of snow. As models converge on one solution, check back for an update late this week.
Summer brings warm afternoons perfect for biking, but the summer heat and humidity can also spark thunderstorms and severe weather. Be prepared for any type of adverse weather headed your way with Aeris Pulse.
