Sunny and hot forecast for Minneapolis – then cooling
We’re looking at a bonus day of 80s in the Twin Cities forecast, with sun and dry conditions. After that we’ll cool off for Saturday and Sunday, with shower chances moving into the area.
Here’s a look at your Minneapolis 7 day forecast (and St. Paul 7 day forecast):
While it doesn’t look like we’ll see contact showers at any point, Saturday and Sunday both see shower chances and clouds moving through the area as cooler temperatures move in.
Here’s a look at shower chances showing up on our future radar as we head overnight tonight into very early Saturday:
Note how sparse showers are, even at the most likely time on Saturday for them to arrive. That’s a sign of how this weekend will look. Shower chances – but not likely showers – at various times between tonight and Monday.
Looking ahead, we’ll stay cooler through Monday, before temperatures start to slide up and back into the 80s. By the middle of next week we’ll see overnight lows only into the lower 60s and highs in the lower to middle 80s – that’s a sign of summer moving in.
