ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – The first day of fall is looking cool, but bright and peaceful as high pressure settles into the region from the northwest. We’ll have abundant sunshine throughout the day with high temperatures in the low 60s and just a slight north breeze. Fall begins officially at 8:03 this evening, incidentally.

A storm system will move through the heart of the region on Friday, bringing clouds, rain chances, and gusty winds to the area. Sparse, light showers will develop during the morning commute with larger batches of rain in the late morning and early afternoon. There will be widely scattered showers in the afternoon before a larger band of rain moves in for late evening and Friday night. High temperatures will only be in the upper 50s tomorrow and a gusty south breeze will certainly add an extra chill throughout the day as gusts will frequently reach 25 miles per hour.
