Heat returns to Minneapolis’ forecast
We had a mixed bag of summer emotions on Sunday, after a rainy first half to the day in the Twin Cities. Then, the sun came out – and the heat stayed away.
Unfortunately, that’s not happening too often in Minneapolis this summer, so we’ll be seeing upper 80s and lower 90s moving right back into the region.
Here’s a look at your Minneapolis 7 day forecast (and St. Paul 7 day forecast):
Looking ahead, Wednesday’s probably the most fitting day for extreme heat – and there’s a chance we’ll see a few clouds to break up the heat. We’ll also see our best chances for storms in the next week on the 4th of July – but generally coming late-night. We’ll have updates on that in the coming days.
For now, we look toward next weekend and we see what looks like a beautiful, sunny, weekend in the Twin Cities – so cross your fingers that we can avoid a rain-out type of day next weekend, and stay tuned!
