Friday: Beautiful weather today in Minneapolis, then storms in forecast

We’re looking at an absolutely amazing day in the Twin Cities – with the forecast showing signs of all sun, limited humidity, and temperatures right around 80 degrees. In fact, temperatures stay fairly comfortable for the next five or six days, at least.

Take a look at this pretty great-looking 7-day forecast for Minneapolis/St. Paul:

In the meantime, we do see some less positive weather if you’re looking for a sunny Saturday. Saturday looks to start out wet, with rain possible overnight.

Here’s a look at the future radar around 1 a.m. tonight, as showers close in:

Southern MN definitely will see rain, but there’s a chance it scoots south of many of us in the Twin Cities metro overnight – we’ll see.

Either way, on Saturday morning as this system slides east, we’ll still likely see some lingering drizzle/light rain – and clouds. That’ll inhibit our warming, and keep us in the middle 70s. Here’s the future radar view around 8-9 a.m. Saturday:

We will look to gradually dry out after any morning showers – with Sunday coming in as yet another amazing summer day – lower 80s and sunshine.

Stay tuned!
