Record warmth is expected across the state on Sunday. The Twin Cities could surpass 80 degrees, the record being 84F set back in 1930. During a typical year, our area will see at least one 80 degree day in October. Great cycling weather continues with a dry stretch through next week.
The last time we saw 80F in October was in 2011 when the thermometer reached at or above 80 degrees eight times!
Record high temperatures go back to the 1930's...many being tied or broken Sunday afternoon.
Dusty Trails: Dry weather hasn't been too good to the soil. Abnormally dry drought conditions are now expanding across portions of Minnesota. Take a look at the difference in drought last week compared to this week:
Strong winds are likely to develop on Monday in the wake of a cool front. Winds could gust over 30 mph at times. This could mean trail clean up of limbs and branches early next 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.
