Warmer and drier in Minneapolis forecast
After a Monday filled with rain, chilly temperatures, and mist – today we see some slight clearing in the Twin Cities’ forecast. We also get a momentary boost in temperatures as we head to Wednesday, before tumbling again.
Here’s a look at your Minneapolis 7 day forecast (and St. Paul 7 day forecast):
Speaking of the warmer temperatures we get for a day, we’ll see warm air surge north overnight tonight to tomorrow – and that’ll give us a shower chance tonight – generally after most people are home from work.
Looking ahead toward Wednesday morning, we could see a few more shower chances linger as the warm air lifts north:
The positive of this is that, at a minimum, we’ll climb up to around the lower 70s – but if showers lift north quickly we could climb up into the middle to upper 70s for the day.
Here’s the future temperatures map tomorrow morning:
Those yellow shades are temperatures 60-65 degrees a mile up in the atmosphere, which if we were sunny could “mix” down to the surface and create temps near 80 degrees. We’ll struggle to see that happen, but it’s worth watching if showers clear. Stay tuned!
