Severe Storms Saturday Night

Storms fired a long a cold front slicing through Minnesota Saturday evening.  As these storms developed into a line, damaging winds became the main threat, but hail stole the show.  For the most part the hail was on the smaller size (Dime to pea size) but it piled up in spots.  Looking at the pictures […]

Our weather this week has gotten progressively warmer and warmer and seemingly more September-like as the 50 and 60 degree high temperatures we experienced a week or so ago have given way to the more seasonable lower 70s.

It’s now been a full week since Rochester officially reached the 70 degree mark.

Patchy Frost Tuesday Morning?  Warmer Days Ahead

We almost had our third day in the 50s this month, but sunshine late Monday afternoon helped our temps jump into the low 60s at the Rochester International Airport.  High pressure helped that sunshine break out by clearing the clouds, and those clouds will continue to go on the decrease as the evening and overnight […]

The coldest air mass since spring continues to provide us with unseasonably cool weather as we round out only the second week of September.

An Autumn Blast That’s Bigger Than The Last

Poetry aside, last week we had a dose of cooler Canadian air slide down giving us highs around 70 and overnight lows in the mid to upper 40s.  If that was on the cool side for you then you are in for a shock as this next batch of cool air will send our temperatures […]
