More heat and humidity in Minneapolis forecast
After multiple rounds of showers and thunderstorms in the Twin Cities on Friday and Saturday, we finally dried up and cleared out for Sunday. Left sunny and quiet for much of the day.
Today and for much of this week, we stay warm – adding in a bit more heat and humidity by midweek as well. Here’s a look at your Minneapolis 7 day forecast (and St. Paul 7 day forecast):
Looking ahead, we stay pretty steady on Monday and Tuesday – but temperatures jump up on Wednesday. We’ll get a blast of hot air shifting in from over the Dakotas as we head Tuesday to Wednesday.
We could see some showers/storms as that hot air moves in, but otherwise we’re looking fairly dry across much of Minnesota in the long-term forecast. Our next shower chance is another minor chance as we head toward the end of the week.
We’ll round out the workweek with above-average temperatures, which will make it feel very much like many associate with the early days of August. Stay tuned!
