Current Forecast

We’re headed to Minnesota in October. As someone with family in Minnesota, I immediately start thinking about cold and snow chances. Not this time, though! This may very well be a top 10 day for football. Maybe a top five.

The day will start off on the cool side and if you’re at the game and tailgating early, you’ll see temperatures in the low 40s. By kickoff at 11 a.m., the thermometer will still be in the 40s, but in the upper 40s. With an abundance of sunshine, it won’t take long for things to warm up, but it is Minnesota, so it won’t warm up a whole lot. By halftime, it’ll be in the middle 50s and by the fourth quarter, it’ll be very close to 60 degrees.

So it’s looking like a cool, October day with lots of sunshine and not a lot of wind. What a day for football!

Here is the hour-by-hour forecast:

  • 11 a.m.: Mostly sunny and cool, 48 degrees, west wind at 5 to 15 mph.
  • 1 p.m.: Mostly cloudy, rain possible, 55 degrees, west wind at 5 to 15 mph.
  • 3 p.m.: Mostly cloudy, rain possible, 58 degrees, west wind at 5 to 15 mph.
