@SpikeWeather  Wednesday is looking like a great day to check out the fall colors! Thursday is a bit more uncertain as a trough may build in that day. Timing is still up in the air, but the further west you go, the more likely you will see some rain showers.

Working this weekend and can't go leaf peeping? (Maybe that’s just us…) No worries – do your fall color chasing remotely via satellite! Some of the brightest colors along the higher elevations in the area are very visible on satellite these days. #mnwx  #wiwx  #fallcolors

Other notable features are sediment runoff into Lake Superior from widespread rains (something we haven't seen a lot of this year) and burn scars from recent wildfires.

Have you captured any photos from the changing fall colors? Post your pics in the comments below for your weekend meteorologists (and everyone else) to enjoy. :)

Quiet conditions are expected into the new week. Temperatures will be near to slightly above normal with partly to mostly sunny conditions. #mnwx  #wiwx

🚨 SCIENCE ALERT! 🚨 An interesting wave-like phenomenon occurred this morning over portions of the Northland called an undular bore. They are caused when an air mass, such as from a cold front/outflow boundary, collide with a cooler, more stable air mass. #mnwx  #wiwx

Tomorrow will be a pleasant day, with mostly clear skies and a 0% chance of precipitation. Temperatures will be in the 60s to 70s, slightly cooler near the lake due to a NE breeze. #mnwx  #wiwx

Long-term forecasts are showing warm and dry conditions continuing into October. A slow moving cold will cross the area towards the end of the week for a little rain.

Northeast winds will increase the risk of rip currents along beaches near the Twin Ports - specifically Park Point and Wisconsin Point beaches. A Beach Hazards Statement is in effect.

#Meteorite ! as the John G. Munson makes its way through the Duluth Canal - this time a video! Watch the upper right hand corner.. #mnwx  #wiwx 

Well, folks, it's so cold here in #Duluth , we are freezing our pants off. ? This pair of pants has froze solid and is standing by itself! 630 AM temperature is -25 degrees. ???

Here's a 47 hour forecast of near-surface smoke starting at 8 pm tonight and running through 7pm Sunday. We've got a rough patch ahead for tomorrow, but looks like we'll get some relief Sunday. (red colors = smoky; white=no smoke)

We have the highest risk for severe weather we've seen so far this year AND our radar is down! That means we will be heavily relying on storm spotter reports tonight. If you see any large hail, wind damage, rotation in the clouds, or anything else, please let us know! #mnwx  #wiwx 

Our IFalls observer just called and said he had about 10 minutes of snow around the top of the hour. The Falls had a high of 82 yesterday and a low of 35 this morning. And a trace of snow. Ope. Spring in Minnesota! #mnwx 

Some incredible pictures and video have come out of the #greenwoodfire , showing #pyrocumulus  clouds forming from this intense fire. You can see in the image the billowing pyrocumulus above the main smoke cloud, looking very similar to a fair weather cumulus cloud. #mnwx

The BWCAW in northern MN has closed due to high fire hazards. The last time this occurred was in the autumn of 1976. Let's take a quick look at how the 1976 drought compares to that of 2021. (Thanks to the USGS, MN DNR, and NOAA NCEI for data) #mnwx  #wiwx  #drought  #FireWX

Here is a look at the most recent HRRR model output for near-surface smoke through midnight Thursday. Conditions should begin to improve overnight Wednesday into Thursday as south winds prevail in the second half of the week. #mnwx  #wiwx
