Strap in folks, it’s September and almost autumn! After a chilly weekend in the Northern Plains and Midwest, a couple warm days put temperatures back into the 80s and 90s. Just as fast as temperatures warmed up, it has cooled back down again, but will warm-up this weekend!
Warm temps were widespread in California Friday, and will continue for many for the weekend. Highs in the 90s and triple digits have prompted heat advisories, and also increased the fire danger in the southwest.
Hot and dry conditions will bring elevated fire danger to mountains, deserts, valleys, and #CentralCoast through Saturday. Warmest inland areas up to 105° with minimum humidities 7-15%. Use extreme caution with potential fire ignition sources. #LAheat #LAWeather #cawx #Socal pic.twitter.com/Vh7iRfckb7

Highs above 90° are more common in August than September across the South and Southeast. This means that temperatures will be anywhere from 5 to 15 degrees ABOVE average.
The high Tuesday in Minneapolis was 79, but have returned to the 60s for Twin Cities. 80s will be back later this weekend and into next week as the fall roller coaster ride continues.
Detroit felt like summer to start the week, but cooler weather was felt Thursday with highs only in the 60s. The mercury jumped back into the 80s Friday, and will be felt again Sunday.
