The maple tree outside the Weather Lab screams fall this week.
Most of us will see the sun again Wednesday across Minnesota. Scattered showers return as we head toward the weekend.
Best days of the week
Wednesday and Thursday will be the sunniest days this week. Get out there and enjoy. Cooler temps in the 50s return this weekend.
The timing could be better. A few showers skate by Friday, but the more focused rains arrive late Saturday and linger into Sunday. A few renegade snowflakes may fly in northeast Minnesota Sunday.
Milder again next week
The jet stream waffles overhead in the next two weeks. That should bring alternating cool shots and warm spells.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration picks up on the longer term trend for warmer than average temps overall as we move deeper into October.
More days in the 60s appear likely in the next one to two weeks. A shot at 70-degrees is not out of the question just yet.
Fall color peak approaching
Fall colors are peaking in central Minnesota now. Colors are fast approaching the elusive peak in the Twin Cities.
