Near record highs tomorrow & Friday

Here’s your Wednesday evening forecast for December 6, 2023 from Minnesota’s Weather Authority and Meteorologist Wren Clair.

Good evening! Today was another mild day with highs reaching into the mid to upper-40s for most of the Twin Cities. Warmer air continues to build in overnight into tomorrow, with near record highs both tomorrow and Friday. Tomorrow’s high temperatures will be close to 54°, which is a record for the Twin Cities set back in 1939. I think much of the Twin Cities will be within about two degrees of this record high. Friday now looks warmer as well, with highs just shy of 50°. The record high for this Friday is 50°, set back in 1990.

Behind our late workweek storm system, light snow to a light wintry mix is possible Saturday. Under 1″ of snowfall is possible. Otherwise we stay in a dry and relatively mild pattern Sunday through next week, with temperatures overall trending slightly above average.

Have a wonderful night!
