Labor Day marks the unofficial end of summer, and what a day to end it on! Besides a few small storm cells, much of the area is seeing sunny skies with comfortable conditions.
These isolated storm cells will pass to the south of Mankato and will not last into the night. So we will see partly cloudy and dry conditions. Lows will dip to 58 with WSW winds at 5 MPH.
The first day of school is tomorrow! It will be a pleasant morning to take the picture on the front porch before the kids hop on the bus for the first time of the year. Expect plenty of sun tomorrow with a high of 77. Winds will be from the W at 5-10 MPH. A few more clouds will be around tomorrow night. Lows will dip to 59 with a S wind at 5-10 MPH.
Wednesday will turn warm and muggy as winds accelerate from the south. Highs will be around 86. With this comes the chance of storms, but it looks like this will be very late in the evening. These storms will taper off Thursday morning, leaving a partly cloudy day with highs in the low 80's.
A strong cold front will push through Thursday night, causing Friday to be much cooler in the low 70's for highs. These cooler temperatures will persist into the start of next week.
