We’re just barely nudge past 50 degrees today in the Twin Cities, and that’ll be the last time for some time as we cool off and watch rain chances arrive after today.
Here’s a look at your Minneapolis 7 day forecast (and St. Paul 7 day forecast):
Over the next few days we’ll see some light rain arrive – first – followed by more moderate rainfall as we head into Saturday and Sunday. Let’s start by talking about the first batch of rain.
Here’s the future radar as we approach the overnight hours:
You can see a blob of rain just west of the Twin Cities as we head toward about 9-11 p.m. tonight. That’ll stick around as we head overnight and into Friday.

You can see in the image above that rain won’t be constant, but it’ll be around. In fact, chances will stick around all day and into Friday evening:
Look at that image above. You can still see showers sticking around – but look west. That’s our *next* batch of rain, already showing up by 9 p.m. on Friday. That’ll work its way in by midday Saturday, with heavier rain coming after that as we head into Saturday afternoon/evening and Sunday.
