Summer-like temperatures move in to Minneapolis forecast
Just when you thought we were switching to fall in the Twin Cities forecast, we’re looking at very summer-like temperatures. We’ve even added a couple of degrees to yesterday’s long-term forecast, putting us about 9-10 degrees above average today, and more than ten degrees above average heading into the weekend.
Here’s a look at your Minneapolis 7 day forecast (and St. Paul 7 day forecast):
Look at those temperatures and sky conditions. We could definitely use some rain, but don’t see a good chance until Monday night. That’s also when we see our next cooldown, with temperatures struggling to hit 70 after a very warm (to really a hot-feeling) weekend.
After Monday it looks like “real” fall temperatures set in, and we see a drop-off to the upper 60s after Tuesday. Stay tuned!
