We’re looking at a cooldown – one that’ll put us at about 20 degrees below average by midweek in the Twin Cities. Then, we start to rebound, just in time for next weekend.
Here’s a look at your Minneapolis/St. Paul 7 day forecast:
Note the mention of an early shower in the Twin Cities. We’re watching a weak line come through, which will usher in slightly cooler temps for Sunday and give a few of us – mainly to the north – some morning rain.
Here’s the radar view as of 9:55 a.m. this morning:
Note the little shower I circled near Brooklyn Park/Osseo/Plymouth, moving east. There’s also a little batch closer to Stillwater. Other than that, we’ll see showers slip away and we’ll dry out again.
Looking ahead, the next more organized rain chance shows up Wednesday to Thursday, with the possibility of heavier rain in the southern 1/3 of Minnesota, which could include the Twin Cities – so stay tuned!
