Minnesota is about to get a dose of football weather

The cool weather will come after a potentially stormy Wednesday.
Publish date:

It'll be a gorgeous Tuesday with highs in the low 80s followed by chances of storms on Wednesday and then a serious shot of cool air on Thursday. 

Once the rain and thunder chances get out of southern Minnesota Wednesday night, Thursday through Sunday is going to be spectacular, with Thursday bringing some fall-like temperatures. Here's the forecasted high temps in the Twin Cities for the next five days. 

  • Wednesday: 76
  • Thursday: 71
  • Friday: 76
  • Saturday: 78
  • Sunday: 79

Focusing on Thursday, temps across the state will struggle to get out of the 60s. 

  • Duluth: 67
  • St. Cloud: 69
  • Brainerd: 68
  • Bemidji: 68
  • Moorhead: 72
  • Twin Cities: 71
  • Marshall: 73
  • Mankato: 71
  • Rochester: 70

Thursday will be the third day of Vikings training camp, and temps in the upper 60s and low 70s are ideal football weather. 

But before the cool weather arrives there is a marginal risk of severe storms across southern Minnesota, including the Twin Cities, on Wednesday afternoon and evening. Hail and strong winds are the main threats. 

The severe potential could increase if morning showers and clouds are able to clear out and allow sunshine heat things up and destabilize the atmosphere. At this point, it's worth monitoring.
