A (mostly) dry forecast for Tuesday in Minneapolis
After a pretty soggy day yesterday in the Twin Cities, we’ve been ready for some dry conditions. Today will be mostly dry, but there are some chances for light showers as we head toward midday today.
Here’s a look at your Minneapolis 7 day forecast (and St. Paul 7 day forecast):
Look at all of those storm icons over the next week. I believe it was just yesterday I wrote about how it was pure June weather we’re seeing, which includes numerous storm chances and warm temperatures – well this looks even *more* like June conditions than yesterday.
Note the sizes of the storm icons above – the bigger they are, the bigger/more widespread the chances are. A small icon like today is only slight coverage, which is exactly what we’re looking for. Here’s the future radar as we head through midday:
You’re not seeing too much in the way of storm coverage, but there are definitely a few specks out there (hence “specks of storms” on the 7-day forecast).
By evening things should clear up, if they haven’t earlier, and we’ll likely be sunny throughout the day tomorrow. Our next chance of storms is slight, and that comes overnight Wednesday-Thursday.
Thursday to Friday we see more storms, and more widespread coverage as well, and that trend really continues until we cool off early next week. Stay tuned!
