Well, somehow it is here… September that is! But before you start ordering your pumpkin spice latte and getting ready to go to Apple Orchards, let’s take a look at the stats and outlook for this September in Minnesota.
TYPICAL FOR MINNESOTA IN SEPTEMBER:
We usually see about 3.08″ of rainfall in the month of September for the Twin Cities with a record year of 7.53″ of rain in 1942. Our temperatures really take a turn from the beginning of the month to the end of the month. Average temperatures for the first of September is 77° for a high and 59° for a low. By the end of the month, those change to 65° for a high and 46° for a low. But we can get warm, and we can get really cold! We’ve had highs in the upper 90s back in 1931 and low temperatures as cold as 26° in 1974.
2019 SEPTEMBER OUTLOOK:
The Climate Prediction Center issued its outlook for September in both temperature and precipitation. For us, trends will be cooler than normal with above-normal precipitation. That doesn’t mean we will be in a cold and wet month, that just mean we have a chance of seeing some cooler days and some more precip than usual. Just be glad it isn’t snow!
Also, don’t forget Grandparent’s Day is Sunday, September 8th, 2019! ☺
