The wind. Oh, the wind. It was warm yesterday in Minneapolis/St. Paul once again, with temperatures near 50 degrees, but we also had winds approaching 30 mph at times.
Today we’ll see winds dropping by about 5 mph or so, but it’ll still be breezy. We’ll also see temperatures fall by about 5 degrees or so.
Here’s a look at your Minneapolis 7 day forecast (and St. Paul 7 day forecast):
Looking ahead, we still stay dry until the weekend. Sunday night we’ll be watching some light showers move into the area – not a washout, but a few raindrops. That’ll be part of a cooldown that’ll drop our temperatures into the 20s for highs by midweek next week.
