Saturday started off great: sunny skies and warming temperatures. Then we saw hours of rain to wrap up the day in Minneapolis/St. Paul.
Today we see sun return to the Twin Cities, with chilly conditions ruling the roost. Here’s a look at your Minneapolis 7 day forecast (and St. Paul 7 day forecast):
Looking ahead there are a few things to note:
- We’re seeing a warming trend moving in. Despite a frost potential for tonight, we’ll see temperatures rebound tomorrow back into the 60 degree range.
- 70s are on the way. That’ll put us 10+ degrees above our average, with is now in the upper 50s in the Twin Cities area.
- Rain-free stretches of 5+ days are rare in fall, and looking ahead… at least for now… we’re seeing no rain chances in the forecast between now and next Saturday.
So we’re dry, sunny, and comfortable. It’s hard to get much better than that in mid-October. Stay tuned!
