Minneapolis, Minnesota

Alright, a forecast for Victoria Weather’s backyard! Certainly we have home-field advantage for this challenge, right? Right?!

At 753pm CDT, the temperature at Minneapolis, MN was 75 degrees under mostly cloudy skies. A vort max is swinging through the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest tonight, which is kicking up an area of rain and embedded thunderstorms over eastern SD into western MN. This area could bring us some rain showers during the morning hours as it pushes on through, but the main focus will be during the evening. A cold front pushing into the Dakotas currently will stall out a bit over Central MN into SD tomorrow evening, becoming the focus of another round of possible strong overnight thunderstorms (we’ve had a lot of them recently). Activity continues into Wednesday as a weak low pressure area found along the tail end of this front saunters through the Upper Midwest, keeping the region unstable. The rest of the week looks pretty quiet around here, but unfortunately we have to get through a couple volatile days first.
