Saturday’s weather should lift your spirits

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.
