Cool and cloudy Minneapolis forecast
We’re staying relatively warmer today in the Twin Cities, and stay that way through the next 24 hours. Looking ahead toward Tuesday, we’ll see some snow move in to Minnesota.
Here’s a look at your Minneapolis 7 day forecast (and St. Paul 7 day forecast):
Looking ahead, we’re talking about wet snow on the way, centered over Minnesota on Tuesday. Looking ahead, it looks like Monday will just be a cloudy day with highs around 40 degrees. It’s not until late Monday/early Tuesday that snow and mixed showers start to slide in over the Twin Cities:
We could see some light rain or drizzle in the earlier sections of this precipitation over Minnesota, gradually shifting to all snow – and all wet snow. If snow sticks, it could cause a messy commute due to the timing:
In that image above, you can see precipitation directly overhead in the forecast, and right in the middle of Tuesday’s morning commute. Much of that snow will melt on contact, or shortly after, and that bodes well for commuters.
We’ll definitely look for snow to stick on grassy and metal surfaces, and possibly bridges. We’ll also see a little stick on roads if we get enough – even if it melts shortly after that.
