There’s a dusting of snow on the ground in the Twin Cities, and thanks to 20 degree below-average temperatures the past two days, we’re not seeing it melt away.
Today we see quiet weather, and some peeks of sun in our forecast. We try to warm up close to 40, but it’ll be a struggle. Here’s a look at your Minneapolis 7 day forecast (and St. Paul 7 day forecast):
Looking ahead, there is a bit of warmer weather. This time of year when you warm up you don’t often see sunshine, and that’s exactly what happens this week. We’ll warm up near 50 on Tuesday, but the price we pay for that is clouds and possible rain showers.
There’s a chance we’ll stay in the 40s for Wednesday with fewer clouds, and then gradually we work our way back down to the 30s. As of now, we’re not trending toward some sort of extra-warm fall in Minneapolis/St. Paul’s forecast. You never know, though… Stay tuned!
