Warm pattern holds this weekend through next week

Good evening! High temperatures today were in the low-40s across the metro today. Cloud cover has built back into much of southern and southeastern Minnesota. This has the Twin Cities sitting back in the low-30s this evening. Tonight’s low temperatures are again in the upper-20s and low-30s for most of Minnesota. Some patchy fog is possible tonight, and it could be locally dense at times outside of the metro area. Isolated slick spots are possible, especially overpasses and bridges.

Your weekend forecast is dry apart from the slight chance for light spotty showers across far southwestern Minnesota Saturday. Weekend high temperatures are back into the mid-40s tomorrow, and mid to upper-40s Sunday. We should have partly sunny skies both weekend days.

Next week, we’re again looking at potentially tying or breaking some records. Monday should be partly cloudy with a high of 48°. The record is 51° set back in 2005. Tuesday looks to be partly sunny with a high of about 52° (record is 51° set 99 years ago in 1925). Highs temperatures Wednesday and Thursday next week will also be near record warmth.

Our next chance for precipitation is light rain late Wednesday, with rain more likely Thursday. We could see a wintry mix overnight Thursday into Friday of next week.

Have a wonderful weekend!
