Another taste of summer in Minneapolis’ forecast
We get another shot of warmer weather today before things level off a bit in the Twin Cities, as we climb near 80 degrees. It’s hard to believe that just a couple weeks ago we were complaining about an 18″ blizzard.
Here’s a look at your Minneapolis 7 day forecast (and St. Paul 7 day forecast):
Today looks absolutely amazing in the Twin Cities – at least during the day. Then, we see a line of showers/light thunderstorms start to develop to our northwest. It looks like it won’t be a solid line, because it’s lacking the energy and the moisture for that:
You can see the broken line of showers working its way through Minnesota, northwest to southeast, but it’s important to note that some spots likely won’t see rain… and one of those spots could be the Twin Cities metro area.
It’s more likely that some of us will see rain/storms, however, and here’s the future radar as those showers arrive tonight:
After that line passes overhead, regardless of rain for the metro area, we dry out and cool off a bit for Sunday, as this is somewhat of a cool front passing through.
Sunday looks amazing in a different way, with temperatures climbing to right about 70 degrees and sunny skies with just a light breeze.
Enjoy the weather this weekend, and don’t be caught off-guard if there are showers early this evening. Stay tuned!
