Slightly spring-y forecast in Minneapolis with a hint of green
Unfortunately, we’re at least a few weeks away from real green (plants, etc.) in the Twin Cities – but today’s St. Patrick’s Day forecast looks bright and warmer.
We’ll climb into the middle 40s, with some lucky folks to our south possibly even higher than that. Here’s a look at your Minneapolis 7 day forecast (and St. Paul 7 day forecast):
Looking at this 7-day forecast, you can see we’re still not where we’d like to be: warm. That’s still going to take some time, but for now we can enjoy the slightly warmer temperatures we’re seeing in today’s forecast.
Here’s a look at some of the temperatures, still, around 6 p.m. today:
Still around the middle 40s – so not too shabby. Looking ahead, we dip down when we see a mix of rain and snow arriving Monday night to Tuesday. It’ll start as some light snow (most likely) but transition to a mix – and any slushy accumulations will melt quickly on Tuesday.
