After a particularly humid summer the first autumn chills are moving
into the Twin Cities this week.

According to the National Weather Service forecast, temperatures on
Tuesday see a high of just 66 degrees with a low of 46 degrees Fahrenheit on
Tuesday night.

This is the first time we’ve seen temperatures this low since May.
According to Minnesota Department of Natural Resources climatologist Peter Boulay, it’s not uncommon for temperatures
to take a dip around this time each year.

On Sept 12. last year, the low was 47 degrees. The record low for the
start of September was 33 degrees back in 1996, Boulay said.

There’s still a bit of summer left however, with highs staying around 70
degrees this coming weekend, according to the National Weather Service.
