More heat and humidity in Minneapolis short-term and extended forecast
We’re sticking with the upper 80s and near-90s in the Twin Cities’ forecast as we head through at least the next six days, during a stretch of very “early-August” type of hot weather.
Here’s a look at your Minneapolis 7 day forecast (and St. Paul 7 day forecast):
Looking ahead, the weather pattern becomes fairly quiet. We’re separated from any new storm systems or shifts in the jetstream, which means we’ll see relatively calm winds – only about 5 mph at the peak – as well as limited chances for any showers or thunderstorms.
In fact, our next chance for storms doesn’t pop up until we look ahead toward our next slight cooldown toward the middle of next week, Tuesday/Tuesday night.
Stay cool this weekend and stay tuned!
