Fall is my favorite season, but I never wish summer away -- because I am well aware of what comes after fall. It's not that I'm a winter hater; quite the opposite, but it's just too long for my liking.

Take a month off winter and add it on to my summer, and Minnesota's seasons would be perfect for me.

Enjoy the last remaining days of our recent streak of warm summer-like weather, because it's coming to an end next week. We'll be changing over from above average temps, to below normal temps as early as Sunday.

Central Minnesota morning low temperatures will generally be in the forties when you wake up next week, but things could be worse. Parts of Northern Minnesota will dip into the thirties for morning lows.

In fact, starting Sunday there's not a high temperature of seventy or above in St. Cloud for as far as the eye can see. Some days next week won't even get out of the fifties.
