SUMMER HAS PEAKED: But Its Not Over

Posted: Updated:
Meteorologist Steve Frazier Meteorologist Steve Frazier

The hot and sticky start to this week may have a lot of you looking for a cool down. I know there are lots of you out there who savor this intense taste of summer, but technically, we have peaked and its all downhill from here, sort of speak. Even though we have noticed the sunsets getting a tad earlier since the first day of summer, we still have lots of daylight for those after work outdoor activities.

Not only do we have the daylight but we still have the warmth. Our highest average temperature in the Twin Cities is 84°. We enjoyed that over the past few weeks, but as of July 22nd, our average high is now 83° and it will continue to decrease for the rest of the year. Don't worry though, as the graphic below shows, we stay pretty warm for a while. Our average high doesn't even fall into the 70s until late August, otherwise known as fair time. We all know how hot that can get!

It all averages out in the end. For those of you who like it hot, here is a bit of hope. The Twin Cities has seen 90° as late as October 10th and 80° as late as Halloween. So, you know what that means, once November arrives, you can officially kiss any hopes of warmth goodbye. 

We would love to see your weather photos. Please email them to photos@fox9.com
