It looked earlier this week like we might be talking some light icy/slushy accumulations for today. Well, thankfully most of that threat is gone. We could see a few raindrops – and then we warm up tomorrow and Friday.
This weekend, however, things get quite a bit colder. Here’s your Minneapolis 7 day forecast (and St. Paul 7 day):
Another couple of things we’re watching:
1) A chance for rain/snow Monday-Tuesday. One major model shows this happening overhead directly, and one shows it further south. We’ll be monitoring.
2) A chance for rain midweek that could be followed by snow. It’d warm us up into the 40s or even 50s again, but at what price? We’ll follow that as well!
