Refreshing.  Nice preview of fall.  If it were to stay like this that'd be one thing, but we have a lot of warm days left before cold settles in for good.  High here was 58 at midnight, 55 the highest during the day.  Up to 1.92" since last eve.

After being spoiled by a string of above normal Septembers, it actually feels pretty good. Out of the last 30 years, I'd say September has warmed the most if not top 3 atleast. 

Only made it to 62F this afternoon.

Meanwhile on the other side of the front, 90 at KIND today and have had 0.01 and two T's the last week and a half.

We had a small cell pop up this afternoon. I saw an old OFB drifting southward toward it, so I thought I'd get under it. Sure enough, they collided and went boom. Although the worst of it only lasted about 30 seconds, we had hail off and on for about 5 minutes. It later blew a semi over on I 69.

Pardon the French, but it caught me by surprise. I only say that when the winds are north of 50. :D

not only was yesterday a record low max of 54 in Madison, it was also earliest in the season it's been this cool.  Previously the earliest min high temp of 54 was September 10th.

Here’s the coldest airport obs I can find across Minnesota. Looks like a season ending freeze across the northland.

 

Frost advisories for the Twin Cities and points north tonight. I can’t recall an earlier winter headline that I’ve been under before. I remember being in Iowa with my parents to see general Wesley Clark speak in September 2000 and there being a frost risk not sure the date or what type of advisory was posted. 

 

Virginia MN: 29

Cook MN: 28

Bigfork MN: 27

Bemidji MN: 28

Ely MN: 27

Merci beaucoup :)

You speak french ?

I learned French from Kindergarten through Grade 9 as its part of our school curriculum. Unfortunately, I’ve forgotten it almost entirely as Grade 9 was almost 12 years ago for me haha. 

Plan on learning it again or at least covering all the basics. Bonjour :D

^ Very impressive for Eau Claire...a 74-year-old record broken by 6 degrees.  And it looks like Rockford IL will shatter the record low max for 9/9.  Record is 63 set in 1924, but it will probably only hit 59-60 today.

There's one year in my childhood that sticks out to me as being similar to this one in having an abrupt flip to an extended period of chilly, drizzly, dreary weather in early September. It would have to have been sometime in the 1990s, I distinctly remember having just started school one year and waiting for the bus shivering in a hoodie for several days. Can anyone think what year that could have been?

1977. Pre hoodie days. Just a KISS tee.

Maybe 1995-96?  Chicago had its earliest freeze on record (ORD hit 32F on 9/22/1995)...then the next day was even more impressive with a low of 29F on 9/23/1995. 

Or, 1993-94?  September 1993 was Chicago's coldest September on record, 59.2F vs. the 1981-2010 normal of 64.6F.  Could have been lingering effects of Pinatubo?

Another record cold max yesterday of 51.  Again the earliest it's been this cold for a high, breaking the previous date of Sept 12th.  

0.35" of rain yesterday, 1.72" for the month.  Steadier rain than was expected today, looks like only slight drying tomorrow before rain moves back in

It had looked like there could be a significant break in the rain today, but models underforecasted this new disturbance lifting northeast across the region.  It's not heavy, but it will keep the rain going for much of the day.
