Heat returns to Minneapolis forecast
We’re looking at the return of the 90s and near-90s over the next few days, or longer. We’re in the thick of summer now in the Twin Cities, and the forecast resembles that. Our average high temperature for today is 84 degrees, so 90 is only about 6 degrees warmer than average – and we stay that way this week.
Here’s a look at your Minneapolis 7 day forecast (and St. Paul 7 day forecast):
Looking ahead, toward the overnight hours, we’re talking about some showers and storms trying to form and make their way into the area.
While not a sure thing, as a wave of energy passes through we’ll see a broken line of showers/storms move in from the northwest:
That future radar image above looks about as impressive as this line gets. It’ll fade a bit by the time it gets to Minneapolis/St. Paul, but we could still have some thunderstorms in the area.
By Monday morning’s commute, whatever is out there will have passed, and we’ll be sunny again to kick off the workweek. Stay cool today and stay tuned!
