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-ish weather, because it's coming to an end this week. We'll be changing over from above average temps, to below normal temps as early as Thursday.

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