Minnesota's strained relationship with warmth is once again making the news cycle as a blast of cooler than normal air is on the way. 

The National Weather Service (NWS) is already hinting at a likelihood of high temperatures struggling to get out of the 40s and 50s near the end of September and beginning of October. 

In a nutshell, it's another reminder that our 70-degree days are dwindling and we're set to dive head first into fall, although the temps projected for the end of next week into early October will be even cooler thanks to anticipation of a dry high pressure system expected to set up in southern Canada. 

"This will supply us with much cooler air and we`ll likely only see highs in the 40s and 50s by the end of the week," says the forecast discussion from the Twin Cities office of the NWS

According to U.S. Climate Data, the average high temperature in the Twin Cities in September is 72 degrees and the average in October is 58 degrees.  

In the short term, temps will be gorgeous with highs in the low 70s on Sunday and Monday before temps dip into the low 60s and upper 50s the rest of the week. 

Low temperatures this week will be colder than normal, dipping into the 40s in the southern half of Minnesota while places up north will likely drop into the 30s Wednesday through Friday.
