WEATHER: Quiet start to October

A mostly dry and seasonably warm start the month of October.

MINNESOTA, USA — Watch of for a few renegade sprinkles overnight. While most of us will stay dry, a spotty shower may pop up. It certainly won't be enough to quench the thirst of your lawn.

Another nice day is ahead for Saturday, with a mix of sun and clouds and highs in the low 70s. There could be a few additional sprinkles and spotty showers, with the emphasis across northern Minnesota. As far as fall weekends go, it doesn't get much better than this!

The weekend is expected to stay mostly dry. While it's not official yet, this will likely go down as the driest September on record at MSP. We've only seen 0.24" of rain so far this month, with the current record .27" from 1882.

The forecast for the TC Marathon is looking pretty fantastic. Temperatures will start out in the lower 50s, with a light easterly breeze, and warm to near 70 by the afternoon.

The next best chance of rain will be late Tuesday and Wednesday of next week. This is when a big cold front brings us another breath of Canadian air, and temperatures fall from near 70 back into the lower 50s for a few days.

Despite the cool down, there still is not a great chance at seeing any white stuff anytime soon.
