Spring Looks Like It's Here to Stay in the Twin Cities

April 23, 2018 09:27 AM

What a difference one week makes.

Seven days ago, the Twin Cities was still digging out from a snowstorm that dropped as much as 22 inches of snow in parts of the metro area. But now, after a gorgeous and warm weekend, more spring weather appears on tap straight through next weekend.


KSTP Chief Morning Meteorologist Ken Barlow said the week will start with sunshine and a high of 68 degrees Monday, maybe approaching 70. 

It gets a bit cooler Tuesday when Barlow's forecast calls for mostly cloudy conditions and a high of 60. But the sunshine is expected to return Wednesday when the high is forecast to reach 62.

A few afternoon April showers could lie in store Thursday, when the high is expected to reach only 56.

But it already looks like another great weekend.

Barlow said Saturday should be mostly sunny with a high of 62. And the sunshine is expected to continue Sunday when the high could approach 70.
