A beautiful day


Rochester, MN (KTTC-DT) --

Hopefully you were able to get outdoors and enjoy today's gorgeous weather. It's been a while since the humidity has dropped this low.

After intense heat and humidity the past few days...

"Just stagnant and hot and thick and unpleasant."

Sunday's dip in the heat index was a much needed break.

"Today is perfect."

All around Rochester, you could find people outside and enjoying what mother nature has to offer when she is in a good mood.

"There's been lots of people going by all day biking and roller-blading and walking. So finally everybody's coming out again," says Aaron Richard with Silver Lake Boat & Bike Rentals.

Many chose to enjoy the refreshing breeze by going on the water. Paddle boat rentals at Silver Lake were higher than they've been in a while.

"The last couple of weeks have been real slow. It's been a little bit too warm to get out on the paddle boats. But when the weather cooled down today, today's been a beautiful day; we've got lots of boats out there today so far," explains Richard.

If the water doesn't to it for you, it was also a great day for a ball game. The Rochester Honkers had an afternoon baseball game, and with the dew point in the 50's rather than 70's like it was last week, the game was much more enjoyable. The hot dogs and peanuts were just an added luxury.

"It's pretty warm out, but it feels really good to get some sun and it's just a gorgeous day to be out here," exclaims Julia Winemiller.

Sunday's weather also brought people back out under the umbrellas to enjoy a nice meal.

"I like it cause it's warm."

"We decided to sit outside today because it was such a nice day. We finally felt relief from the heat and we wanted to enjoy it," says Marlo Zoscl.
