Chilly and cloud weekend in Minneapolis forecast
We’re looking at a pair of days this weekend in the Twin Cities where we’ll struggle to get to 50 degrees, or slightly above, and then see some minor shower chances move into the area.
Here’s a look at your Minneapolis 7 day forecast (and St. Paul 7 day forecast):
Looking ahead, after a chilly day today where we mainly experience just cloudiness, tomorrow and Monday we see a chance for showers moving in. In-between now and then we look more for a few patches of sprinkles/drizzle, particularly overnight.
Here’s a look at the future radar as we head toward this evening, where we see drizzle chances starting to show up on radar:
Overnight those chances slip away, but we see a new line of showers developing near us, lined up west-east, which could give us light rain earlier on Sunday. Here’s the future radar around 10 a.m. Sunday:
We’ll see that small line gradually shift east/northeast, and take its time moving away. Most rain looks to line up to our north, however, so Minneapolis/St. Paul should just see some light showers occasionally moving through (barring that line setting up directly overhead instead of to the north).
We’ll see additional shower chances appear, then, as we head into Sunday night and Monday. Stay tuned!
