Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) -  For the most part, the first half of November has been very pleasant for the Rochester area.

Residents are noticing some plants are still blooming, grass is still growing and it feels like spring or early autumn.

 Above average temperatures have been recorded on all but one day so far this month  (Friday the 13th was the exception) with daytime highs comparable to mid October. Compare this to November last year when there was a streak of 11 days (Nov 11-22) when the temperature never got above freezing.

But it appears this run of nice weather may be coming to an end.

Colder air will move in later in the week and HIGH temperatures are expected to top out in the 30’s on Friday. Worse, Accuweather.com is predicting the cold weather could mean the Rochester area may have highs in 30’s for the remainder of the month.

It also predicts the high on Thanksgiving will only be around 35 and the low temperature on Black Friday may drop to 10 degrees.  

So enjoy this balmy weather if you can - it may not get this warm again until April!

Check out these plants that are still blooming:
