Weather for the week: Pretty darn nice


What a beautiful autumn weekend in Minnesota and around the region. It looks like the week ahead will be very pleasant, too, except for a slight chance of a shower mid-week.

Get ready for more blue sky Monday. Temperatures are going to remain right on track for this time of year, reaching the upper 50s to near 60 degrees. Look for more of the same Tuesday and the first part of Wednesday.

There is a chance of some rain mid-week, though, when a weak frontal boundary pushes through the region late Wednesday. Expect clouds to increase Wednesday afternoon with rain chances starting around dinnertime and lasting through Thursday morning.

Already looking forward to next weekend? It looks as though we'll have another stellar one ahead!

Skies will clear out by late Thursday, leaving behind mostly clear skies. So, look for more sunshine Friday through the weekend.

We even get another surge of mild, Pacific air into the region to accompany the sun. At this point, models are hinting at daytime highs to be well into the 60s Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, wow!

So we've got a few more days, at least, to do some leaf-peeping before they all blow away.

Just for fun, here's a video from MPR's Tim Post, who used a GoPro camera on a 20-foot pole to get closer to fall.
