This week’s warm weather may disappear as fast as the leaves on trees.

The string of sunny and dry days, with temps reaching the mid- to upper-70s, ended Wednesday and the National Weather Service said today is expected to be cooler and wet with a strong chance for showers and thunderstorms.

Friday into the weekend will feature highs in the low 50s or upper 40s, and the first hard frost predicted to hit Saturday night with an overnight low around 27 degrees.

The fall colors were at or near peak in much of southeast Minnesota Wednesday afternoon, a little earlier than usual, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. The state typically hits peak fall color between early and mid-October.

You may want to get out the rake this weekend: With the colder temperatures and breezy conditions forecast for today and Friday, leaves will begin blowing to the ground.
