Weather Forecast


Cool temps continue but 90s might be in the offing

It has been another cool week this week with highs generally in the low to mid 70s. Highs on Tuesday struggled to make it to 70 degrees across northern Minnesota. Morris reached only 73 degrees on Tuesday.

I must say that Morris did reach 82 degrees on Monday along with some widely scattered rain across the area, but that was short-lived.

"Normal" highs this time of the year are usually in the low to mid 80s for the area. There is a change, however, coming our way for the weekend! On Saturday we could see highs approaching 90 degrees across the state. Portions of Southern and Western Minnesota could even see some mid to upper 90s! Wow, I don't know if I can handle that!

Have a great weekend and don't forget the suntan lotion.


In 1968, 7.09" of rain fell at Mankato. Approximately 1,200 homes had slight to heavy damage. Highways 169 and 22 were blocked by mud slides.


Rain occurs when tiny cloud droplets collide to form bigger droplets. This keeps happening until the droplet is too heavy for the air to support it and it falls to the earth.
