Beautiful summer-like weather in Minneapolis forecast – for a day
We’re looking a beautiful day today in the Twin Cities’ forecast – with sunny skies and quiet weather. It’ll be great while it lasts, which won’t be too long. There are a number of hot and humid, as well as stormy, days on the way for much of Minnesota.
Here’s a look at your Minneapolis 7 day forecast (and St. Paul 7 day forecast):
So great today and tomorrow, with sunny skies and calm conditions – then some big changes for the weekend. Friday we could be flirting with 90 degrees for a high, with additional humidity.
By Saturday and Sunday any question about 90s is gone, and instead we’re talking about heat index values (what it’ll feel like) near 100 degrees for the weekend.
As of now, there are no “sure thing” storms on the way for the weekend, with the best chances actually shifting north as our heat has shifted over us – but don’t be surprised to see a storm or three sneak in during afternoons/overnight any of these days. With a morning storm you might see a muggy day that doesn’t quite climb into the 90s, but I’ll let you decide if that’s a good thing or not!
