After snow a couple days ago, we’ve warmed up quickly. Today we warm up a bit more in the Twin Cities but also see the chance for rain later on.
Here’s a look at your Minneapolis 7 day forecast (and St. Paul 7 day forecast):
Note that showers show up fairly frequently in this new 7-day forecast, and that includes today. We’ve already seen some light rain and more will impact us as we head through the day.
The best chances for more “real” rain increase as we head closer to evening, with drizzle/light showers before that:
Here’s the future radar view as we get closer to the heavier rain, just in time for the evening commute:
By around 9-10pm tonight moderate rain will have subsided and we’re just left with lingering drizzle around much of central/southern Minnesota. Tomorrow should be dry, with lingering clouds and *hopefully* a peek of sun! Stay tuned.
