Monday: Summer-like showers possible in Minneapolis forecast

We’re watching a weak batch of energy coming through the Midwest tonight, which could create some isolated thunderstorms early in the evening for the Twin Cities metro and beyond.

After that, Tuesday and Wednesday look dry, with Wednesday dry and mostly sunny until the overnight hours. Here’s a look at your Minneapolis/St. Paul 7-day forecast:

Looking toward Thursday and Friday, and starting Wednesday night, we see some unsettled weather in Minneapolis/St. Paul, with showers/storms on and off at times. As we close in on those days the picture will become more clear – but for now you can expect some on and off rain.

Back to today’s/tonight’s showers for a moment. Here’s the future radar as isolated storms develop early evening:

That’s the high resolution forecast radar right about 5 p.m. tonight – and you can see the possibility of a thunderstorm right over Minneapolis/St. Paul. After that there’s a lingering chance through the evening and into the wee hours of Tuesday, then we dry out.

Stay tuned!
