We’ve just enjoyed the warmest October in 48 years in the metro and most of Minnesota.
The preliminary numbers are in and it appears this will go down as the 8th warmest October on record at MSP Airport.

MODERN DAY RECORDS
At least we enjoyed an excelent Halloween night for trick or treaters. The light winds and stunning moon made for excellent conditions last night!
Trick or treaters ready near the weather lab Monday evening.
November: Reality check tomorrow
Look for cloudy skies and a few stray rain showers as we open November today.
November begins on a mild note, temps will push into the upper 50s today with a shot at 60 in southeast Minnesota and maybe close to the metro.
A colder front will bring us back to reality by tomorrow.
