Next Wens. on Dec. 15th it shall be 71 degrees in the Des Moines, IA area. And WIND and OPEN water!
Here in SE MN it'll be around 52 degrees, but not much wind for the rare patch of open water, (Lake Pepin, or Upper St. Croix).
Lake Pepin (widest part of the Mississippi River) will only get about 9 mph wind. Just barely hydroplaneable with a formula board and 11 meter sail!
Oh, but just three hours south of Rochester (2.5 hours from Albert Leah) it'll be warm (71 degrees) with 24 mph wind (with higher gusts).
I wonder if I should wear a shorty? No, not really, I don't need to show off my Narly kneecaps! I'll will be decked in my Drysuit and mitts, boots and hood.

Windsurfing on the Rise.
Quetzalcoatl out!
