Record Rainfall in the Area

September 7, 2016 0 Comments

The slow-moving storm system interacting with this very juicy, humid atmosphere produced some localized flooding along the Minnesota-Iowa border once again, eerily similar to the set up a few weeks ago that brought more than eight inches to […]

Above normal end to September; staying warm in October?

Even though the official start to autumn is this Wednesday, September 23, it does not necessarily feel like it. Highs in Rochester are forecasted to be in the 70s for the next seven days, which is a few degrees above normal. We don’t want to say for sure that temperatures beyond the 27th will be […]

Typical Early Fall Weather Ahead in the Next Week

We’re certainly enjoying a nice variety of weather this month as a solid week of 80s has given way to more seasonable, more fall-like 70s this week and the prospect of something even cooler looms in the our forecast picture. The large, upper level ridge in the jet stream that allowed some of the warmest […]

A long spell of summer warmth

We’ve saved the longest stretch of summer warmth for a part of the year that in some ways isn’t even considered summer. As we change the calendar to September, we also change our weather calendar to Meteorological Fall which means we’re now in the three-month of block of the most autumn-like weather in the year. However, […]

Fall officially begins on a mild note; plenty of warmth ahead

We’ve already experienced our share of fall weather over the past month or so with a couple of spells of 50 and 60 degree highs and even a couple of rounds of frost in the area, but ironically as we reach the autumnal equinox, the official start to fall, our weather seems to be actually […]

The Cool Spell is ending, A Warmer Spell Lies Ahead

It’s now been a full week since Rochester officially reached the 70 degree mark. With an October-like weather pattern in place, highs in the 50s and 60s have been the norm and we’ve even had a little premature frost on a couple of occasions. However, that pattern is beginning to change as a shift toward warmer, more […]

October-like Weather Continues into the Weekend

The coldest air mass since spring continues to provide us with unseasonably cool weather as we round out only the second week of September. Yes, we have to remind ourselves that it is only September, but from the way it looks and feels, it might be late October or early November. Our Friday is featuring […]
