We’ve seen a bit of a temperature rollercoaster around the Twin Cities, with cooler weather on Thursday followed by a slight warmup. We’ll see comfortable temperatures in the forecast for this weekend, but also some possible showers/storms.
Here’s a look at your Minneapolis 7 day forecast (and St. Paul 7 day forecast):
While we mention “showers/storms” as a possibility, they’ll be pretty isolated. Mostly you’ll just see some storms in the distance, with a chance that one forms over you. Here’s the future radar view by around 1-2pm this afternoon:
Looking ahead toward Sunday? We can expect more of the same, with a few more showers or storms added on. Overall it should be a pretty pleasant weekend in Minneapolis/St. Paul, and the forecast keeps us hovering just under the 80 degree mark.
Not bad for the first weekend of August! Stay tuned.
