Enjoy the sun: Chilly, wet weather on the way

Most of Minnesota will enjoy sunny, warm fall days through mid-week, with wet, cooler weather likely heading into the weekend, forecasters say.

September days averaged about 5 degrees warmer than average, MPR meteorologist Paul Huttner notes in the Updraft blog. "After a rough spring, we got two Augusts this year. Payback for a reluctant spring," he writes.

Monday could be the last 80-degree day for the foreseeable future, Huttner says.

Tuesday and Wednesday will be mostly sunny and breezy with highs in the 70s in much of the state. The state's northern stretches, including Ely and International Falls and Roseau, will see highs in the 60s, the National Weather Service says.

Rain is likely to move into the Twin Cities Wednesday night and stick around for a few days. A "potential drought-busting" system will move into the state, KARE 11 reports.

It'll be rainy and much chillier Saturday, with a high of just 55 degrees in the metro, the weather service says. The low Saturday could dip into the 30s that day in the metro, WCCO reports, with a low of 35 in Hibbing.

The skies are likely to clear as the state dries out early next week, forecasters say.
