Thursday’s Minneapolis 7-Day Weather Forecast

It’s another quiet, but very cold, day in the Twin Cities weather forecast. We’ll nudge above zero for a high, after starting off in the single digits below zero.

Rounding out the week, we’ll stay colder until the weekend, when we see a very welcome pattern shift that bumps us up about 15 degrees (or more) at least through midweek next week.

Here’s a look at your Minneapolis 7-day forecast (and St. Paul 7-day forecast):

What this more extended warm-up means is that the pattern shift that results in this upper-level temperature forecast map for Sunday is here to stay, at least for a while:

Those blue shades in the map above indicate cold temperatures, but “normal” January cold and not extreme arctic air. We’ll likely enjoy our break as long as it’ll last. Stay tuned!
