Thursday: Quiet today in Minneapolis forecast, then rain

We get a one-day break from the nearly constant parade of storms that have made their way through Minneapolis, during what’s become a pretty rough spring in the Twin Cities.

Unfortunately, our forecast doesn’t improve much until Saturday and Saturday, when we see some 70s and sunshine on the way. Here’s a look at your Minneapolis/St. Paul 7-day weather forecast:

So let’s talk about the rain on the way – the next rain. We should be dry today as we wait for that next storm system. Then overnight tonight – and closer to Friday’s commute – we’ll see rain move back in.

Here’s the future radar around 4-5 a.m. tonight/tomorrow:

By midday, most of these showers will have moved past – with a slight possibility of mist/drizzle lingering:

After that we stay breezy (when haven’t we been breezy since about September?!?) and cloudy, until we start to clear up for the weekend.

Looking ahead, there are some shower chances Sunday night to Monday – which is getting into Memorial Day forecast time. Keep an eye out on the Monday forecast if you have outdoor plans, and stay tuned!
