Following Friday's crazy storms that included at least six tornadoes across our state, a week of spectacular weather lies just ahead for Central Minnesota.

We'll start the week today with high temperatures more typical for September, but then again, September is just two weeks away. (Yikes!) Lower dew points in the 50s will make things feel even more comfortable.
