Sept. 29 Weather with Sven: Falls colors popping, chilly week ahead

Video Duration:

Meteorologist Sven Sundgaard pops in for an update on Minnesota's fall colors, wildfires flaring up in California, and a cool week ahead for Minnesota. 

"Friday and Saturday may struggle to hit 50," Sundgaard said. "But by Monday, we're getting closer to 70 here in the Twin Cities with 80s expanding off to the west." 

Friday morning is likely to be the coldest part of the week ahead, with the National Weather Service (NWS) pointing out that the temps will likely stay in the 30s for most of the southern half of Minnesota if cloud cover hangs around, but if skies clear the temps could drop into the 20s. 

But don't expect any freezing conditions in the metro, where Sven says the urban heat island effect should keep temps above the 32-degree mark. 

The best chance for precipitation over the next week is Saturday and Saturday night, though the weather service notes that nothing is for sure at this point. But due to the expected cold temps, the NWS says "it looks potentially cool enough to see some snow mix in at times if we were to have precip north of I-94 Sunday morning, but it wouldn't be any more than that."

Just. The. Messenger. 

Next week warms up but is likely to remain fairly dry, according to the NWS.
