Here we are finally in October, and the fall weather will continue as we head into this first full week of the month. Today, temperatures were on the cool side, ranging from the low 50’s to low 60’s. Average highs for this time of year are in the upper 60’s to low 70’s. Tonight, cloud cover will help temperatures from falling off, so overnight lows will bottom out in the mid 40’s to low 50’s.
Monday, the sun will return which will help temperatures warm up into the upper 60’s to low 70’s. This warming trend will continue into Tuesday, as highs on Tuesday will be in the 70’s. It won’t be until Wednesday when the weather will begin to change. Highs on Wednesday will once again be in the 70’s, but clouds will be on the increase.
By Wednesday evening, an area of low pressure will be moving off the east across Minnesota. A cold front will be extending down into Iowa from this area of low pressure, which will increase our rain chances by the overnight hours Wednesday. Rain will then continue into Thursday, before the cold front moves out of the state by Friday. Rainfall will be on the lighter side, with only a tenth of an inch to a quarter of an inch of rain forecasted. Take a little time this week to get outdoors and enjoy the sight and sounds of fall! Have a great week!
