Last weekend a nice cool shot sank southward out of Canada and encompassed much of the eastern half of the nation. Looks like another and likely stronger surge of early autumn air will sink through the Eastern U.S. through much of the next 7-days. Much of the nation along and east of the Mississippi River will see afternoon highs only in the 70s and even some 60s near the Canadian border. This will mean afternoon highs will be about 5 to 10 degrees below normal.
Some nice and cool mornings will help to start out these cool days. A few mornings may even see lows in the upper 30s in parts of northern Minnesota and Wisconsin. Overall, minimum temperatures will generally be about 10 degrees below normal for much of the next week.
This cool down will definitely get you into the mood for football season and get you thinking about autumn as a whole. If you are interested in learning what to expect for this autumn and a sneak peek into winter 2009, make sure you check back next Tuesday for the Doppler Dale 2009 Fall Outlook and a the Preliminary 2009-10 Winter Outlook.
