ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – This morning temperatures are much warmer than what we experienced earlier this week. The start of your weekend has temperatures sitting in the mid-50s across much of southeastern Minnesota and northern Iowa. Visibility will be lower for many counties this morning as dense fog has formed throughout the region. The NWS has issued a Dense Fog Advisory, which will expire at 9 a.m. If you are out driving this morning, take it slower, use your low beams, and give yourself more distance between cars.

A ridge in the upper levels of our atmosphere will likely cause temperatures to be above average for this time in September. High temperatures will be peaking, so far, in the mid-upper 70s. The next rainfall will be on Thursday morning through Friday, as a cold front comes through, creating some stray to isolated showers with the possibility of a thunderstorm.
