Look To The Skies — Orionids Peak This Week

The Orionids are one of the annual meteor showers we can all witness if weather permits.  The Orionids are made up of the leftover debris from Halley’s Comet.  Statistically these don’t compare in number to some of the other meteor showers that come along such as the Perseids in August or the Gemenids in December.

Mid-Fall Warm Up — Indian Summer?

We have yet to see an above average day this month, but that will likely change today.  I know I know I keep bringing it up, but since our last warm up in late September we haven’t really seen any evidence of warmth.  It hasn’t been crazy cold the whole time, we just haven’t been […]

As advertised, most of us experienced a hard freeze (28 degrees) therefore officially ending the growing season. With that said, we may be able to get back above average in the temperature department later on next week.         If we do get back above that average number, which currently hangs out in […]

The warm, summer-like weather we enjoyed over the weekend seems like a distant memory now thanks to the arrival of a cold front from northern Minnesota that has brought brisk winds, low clouds, and some light rain and drizzle to the area to start the new week.

A Gloomy Wednesday — Mild Stretch Ahead

We’ll call Wednesday a hiccup in the forecast and you’ll see why by the time you see the stretch of pleasant, mild weather heading our way. For reference, the average temperature around these parts for this time of the year is about 70 degrees.  By the time the weekend rolls around we may be close […]

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 […]

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 […]

We’ve been advertising this for about a week, but fall is  going to make a grand entrance into the region starting Tuesday night.  Unseasonably cool air, about 20 degrees below average, will rush into the area behind a very large and very potent system that is taking shape as we speak. (Averages for the second […]

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 […]

August Summary and a Look Ahead to September

We certainly ended August on a warm, rainy note, didn’t we? Compared to what we experienced earlier in the month, there were some rather large changes later in August that will actually carry over into September. One of those pattern changes is frequent rain chances. We’ve had a rather warm, but unsettled Labor Day weekend thus far […]
