Comfortable through Sunday morning in Minneapolis forecast
We’re looking at another beautiful summer day in Minneapolis/St. Paul. With temperatures rising into the middle 80s and abundant sunshine, we can start to forget about a stormy 4th of July that left many of us wanting.
In today’s forecast we’ll be talking about heat that builds back in after today, starting on Sunday, and peaks in the middle 90s by midweek next week. Here’s a look at your Minneapolis 7 day forecast (and St. Paul 7 day forecast):
On a relatively average heat day in Minneapolis in July we have to find something to dwell on, and in this case it’s the wind for today. We’ll be seeing breezy conditions today and tomorrow -peaking at about 10-15 mph.
You can see tomorrow’s heat already building in, though, by this afternoon:
If you look closely, you can see that arrow over Minneapolis, showing middle 80s. Look at those brown shades over the Dakotas, though. That’s the big warm-up that’s coming for Sunday and beyond.
Those brown shades convert to the lower to middle 90s for them. We won’t get quite that hot tomorrow, but a high right about 90 degrees wouldn’t be a tremendous surprise.
Another thing to keep in mind is that we’re slowing down rain-wise. This will be the time of year, most likely, that your lawn won’t need to be mowed as much and you’ll have to water things more.
