Tough week for the fall harvest here in Minnesota. Another shot of rain Thursday will leave the farm fields too wet to do work...for now. Dry air returns Friday along with the coldest air yet this season. Expect some chilly mornings this weekend. Our first widespread frost or freeze is likely, especially Saturday morning with lows in the mid 30s.
While this weekend will be cool temperatures will rise back to normal levels by next week. In addition, very little rain will fall through mid October. Seems to be some of the best riding weather next week as the fall foliage nears peak color.
Climatological data tells us that the first measurable snow in Minnesota is right around the corner. October 16 is the historical first date of snow in Minneapolis/St. Paul. In the map below each colored dot indicates the date by which there is a 50% of at least 0.1" of snow accumulation.
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.
