We’re looking at a quiet start to today in the Twin Cities, with shower chances gradually moving in by evening, with additional shower chances overnight and again Tuesday.
Here’s a look at your Minneapolis/St. Paul 7-day forecast:
After shower chances, we see temperatures drop in the lower 70s for Wednesday. They’ll rebound quickly by Thursday and Friday, and into the weekend – but first we have some rain chances.
Here’s the future radar as we head toward the evening commute – that’s when we could see some drizzle/light rain move in:
Fast-forward just a few hours later, and you see the more “real” rain move in from the southwest:
While we might miss those shower chances in the evening (they’re small – but they’ll be out there for somebody), we’ll also see a broken line of showers move through overnight. Here’s the future radar just after midnight:
That line will clear out by morning, but we’ll see that swirl you can see in the map above (look near NW MN/northern MN) move over the Twin Cities, bringing some additional drizzle/cloud chances by Tuesday afternoon/evening:
After that, temps drop into the lower 70s for Wednesday, with abundant sun. Stay tuned!
