PAGE 20 November 3, 2016 The Aurora Borealis taken along the Lake Superior shore just north of Two Harbors early Sunday morning, Oct. 30. The Northern Lights can be most visible in September-October and March each year. There are a number of factors that must all come together to create the Northern Lights, and there's no way to predict beyond about 45 minutes that they're coming or will be visible. Note that you'll need different settings on your camera in order to catch the Lights. You won't capture the brilliant colors with your cell phone or point- and-shoot camera; you might not catch anything. (We can help direct you to resources if you're interested in learning how.)

AUGUSTA 251-6100 ATWATER 974-8861 KANDIYOHI 382-6100 www.harvestbankmn, com Mark Meteorologist Mild weather to stay with us Weather Column: It was a cloudy start to the week on Monday for Halloween. A warm front brought the cloud cover and some sprinkles early on the day, along with the very mild tempera- tures for the trick-or-treaters. Temperatures climbed into the 50s and even the 60s across southern Minnesota by Monday afternoon and early evening for the ghouls and goblins. We did manage to see a gradual clearing sky, however, as the day rolled on across Greater Minnesota. High pressure moved in Monday night into Tuesday that brought some nicer weather across the region. Temperatures remained above average on Tuesday with highs generally in the low to mid 50s. Look for clouds to increase a bit once again by Wednesday as another frontal boundary sys- tem moves in across the Upper Midwest. We aren't expecting much in the way of moisture with this system. We should see the mild weather stay with us into the weekend. Look for lots of 50s and even the 60s all the way into the weekend. Another system could bring some moisture late in the weekend and into early next week. Enjoy the mild temperatures! Weather history: On this date in 1842, records show that a "mild spell occurs at Ft. Snelling, where the temperature rises to 60 degrees F!" Weather fact: Mild: When it comes to weather, we simply mean the temperatures are more pleasant than expected. If the temperature in December usu- ally averages 12 degrees, and this December it averaged 18 degrees, then it was "milder" than normal.
