Today’s our warmer weather day in the Twin Cities’ forecast, but it comes at a price. We see clouds and drizzle chances all day, even as temperatures climb above our average high of 43 (yeah, we basically skipped the period where our average high would be 44-48 and dove right into winter temps).
Here’s a look at our Minneapolis 7 day forecast (and St. Paul 7 day forecast):
Essentially, this is one of those days that temperatures might be relatively comfortable… but it’s not a pleasant day to be outside. We’ll watch those drizzle chances increase as we head toward midday and early afternoon:
See those patches of green above? It’s about as light of precipitation across Minnesota as the computer forecast models can put out, but it’ll still be enough to make things a bit damp.
We’ll see drizzle chances through the afternoon and into the evening, with a slight chance of light rain mixing in toward the end.
After tonight’s drizzle and light rain we’ll see things dry up and clear out, with sun in the forecast for Wednesday… but at a price. We dip back into the middle to upper 30s again.
