Looking more like spring in Minnesota
Looking ahead toward this week’s warmer temperatures, it’s starting to look a little bit more like spring in Minneapolis/St. Paul’s extended forecast.
We’re still looking for the first actually “warm day” in the Twin Cities, but at least upper 40s are getting there. Here’s a look at your Minneapolis 7 day forecast (and St. Paul 7 day forecast):
Looking ahead, there are some days we’re keeping an eye on. You can see just how close the warmer air (seen in greens in the map below) gets to Minnesota. Meanwhile, cold stays centered over the Great Lakes, so we’re in the transition zone.
Tomorrow warm air slides slightly further east, which allows us to climb up near 40 degrees. The green shaded area shows just how deep the warm air surge travels, all the way toward northern Canada. If we can just get that over to Minnesota… Stay tuned!
