Pleasant end to the workweek
Here’s your Wednesday evening forecast for September 6, 2023 from Minnesota’s Weather Authority and Meteorologist Wren Clair
Good evening! I probably do not have to tell you that today’s forecast brought about a MAJOR change from the hot start to September. Today was the first day this month that the Twin Cities didn’t make it into the 90s for highs. Our technical high today was in the 72° around 3AM. However, breezy northwesterly winds have continued to build in cooler air behind last night’s cold front. So, temperatures have been in the mid-60s all day across most of eastern Minnesota into western Wisconsin where cloud cover remains in place behind the departing system to our east. Western Minnesota has nothing but sunshine, but a hazy sunshine at that. Smoke from Canadian wildfires are leading to poor air quality across the western half of Minnesota (especially west-central and southwestern Minnesota this evening). Smoke to the west improves overnight into Thursday.
Thursday morning starts out a bit cloudy, with decreasing cloud cover opening up to a mainly sunny afternoon and evening. High temperatures tomorrow reach about 72°. Friday is beautiful too, with sunny skies and highs in the upper-70s. Showers and a few t’storms return late Saturday, with scattered (mainly light) rain into Sunday.
