Showers clear away in Minneapolis forecast
We’re looking at showers and thunderstorms early this morning in the Twin Cities, but those showers and storms move away fairly quickly – and fairly early in the day.
Here’s the current radar view, as of 6 a.m. this morning, showing a line of rain passing through the Twin Cities and eastern Minnesota:
Looking ahead, the forecast looks a little bit quieter after this line passes – with just a few more raindrops possible. Here’s a look at your Minneapolis 7 day forecast (and St. Paul 7 day forecast):
You can see a very June-like forecast for the next seven days, meaning lots of sun and temps near 80 as well as lots of shower and thunderstorm chances.
Looking ahead, Friday we’ll see some thunderstorm chances, and then the next best chance (ignoring a slight chance Saturday afternoon) comes Monday to Monday night.
