We’re a little warmer today than yesterday in the Twin Cities, but it’ll feel even warmer (relatively). We shed to 20-30 mph winds today for a day with very little breeze, while also adding about 5-7 degrees of warming.
Looking ahead, there’s much better news than that in the extended forecast. Here’s a look at your Minneapolis/St. Paul 7 day forecast:
That’s a 60 degree temperature back in the forecast for next weekend. It seems like the warmer weather is finally lined up to arrive on a weekend, rather than our previous warmer days on Wednesdays/Thursdays.
Enjoy the slightly warmer weather today, and stay tuned!
