Twin Cities record warmth today, cooler tomorrow but still mild

Here’s your Monday evening forecast for January 29, 2024 from Minnesota’s Weather Authority and Meteorologist Wren Clair.

The Twin Cities had a high temperature today that reached 50°, which breaks the previous record of 49° (1931). The last time we were in the 50s in January was back in 2012. Behind a cold front, winds tonight are blustery out of the northwest, gusting up to about 30 mph. Flurries and sprinkles are possible this tonight into Tuesday morning, but this is more of a slight chance. You’ll notice mostly cloudy skies tomorrow morning, with partial clearing into Tuesday afternoon. High temperatures tomorrow are in the low-40s (so cooler, but well above the average high of 24°)

Record highs are likely on Wednesday. The Twin Cities will reach a high temperature near 52°, which would break the record high of 46° (2009) by a significant margin. Overall temperatures stay significantly above average mainly in the mid-40s for highs and upper-20s for lows. We currently are also looking at a very dry 7-day forecast.

Have a wonderful night!
