Whatever your plans for the weekend, make sure you spend some of it outdoors on Saturday as Mother Nature delivers one of the nicest days this fall.
Hunting, golfing, having a picnic or cookout, watching football, combining the corn crop, even leaf raking should bring a smile to many faces after such a dreary October. Though temperatures are not likely to set records on Saturday in most areas they will be 15 to 20 degrees warmer than normal.
Daytime temperatures in the 60s F are somewhat rare for November 7th. For the Twin Cities this happens only about once every 8 or 9 years historically though since the new millenium we have seen a trend toward warm temperatures on this date. This will be the 5th time we have reached 60 degrees F or higher since 2000. The record high for November 7th is an old one, 72 degrees F back in 1874.
Plenty of sunshine, light winds, and modest humidity will heighten the pleasure of the day. I suspect it will be the nicest day for football seen so far this fall.
