No rain this weekend but it will feel like October. Jackets are a good idea for those early morning rides as temperatures dip into the 30s. Protect sensitive outdoor plants Sunday morning as a frost & freeze develops. At least the lakes are ice free for the Minnesota fishing opener!
Rain returns early next week but 70s are roughly 8-9 days away. Leading into Memorial Day weekend temperatures are expected to be above normal across southern Minnesota.
Minnesota's severe weather season may have started off quiet but locations just to our south from Colorado to Kentucky have been impacted by dangerous storms. Baseballs-size hail in St. Louis and twisters in Colorado really puts our frosty weekend into perspective.
The northern lights put on a great show earlier this week. The aurora borealis results when electrons bombard the outer limits of our atmosphere. The Earth's magnetic field guides these electrons to form circles around the poles, and close to Minnesota at times. A new study now shows changes with the planet's magnetic field. This could impact the formation and location of future northern light events.
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.
