More hot weather for Minneapolis’ and much of Minnesota’s forecast
We’re looking at more heat on the way for today in the Twin Cities and beyond, lasting through the weekend and into the start of next week. Temperatures will hover right around 90 degrees for high temperatures during that stretch.
Here’s a look at your Minneapolis 7 day forecast (and St. Paul 7 day forecast):
Looking ahead, we’re still talking about some pretty significantly dry weather. Thanks to some rain we saw last Friday (remember the deluge?), we’re not too far below average… but that really doesn’t tell the story. Right now we’re technically only 0.04″ of rain below average coming into today.
Tuesday to Tuesday night is when we see our next chance for rain, and that’s not a sure thing at this point. That would come right as our next cooldown arrives and drops us into a more moderate lower to middle 80s range for high temperatures. Stay tuned!
