After a hot and muggy Sunday in Minnesota, the beautiful weather has arrived.
A cold front zipped through late on Sunday, bringing Canadian high pressure that is giving us slightly below normal temperatures – in the upper 70s and low 80s – along with a noticeable drop in humidity for the first half of next week.
Check out this gorgeous paragraph from the forecast discussion at the National Weather Service Twin Cities.
"We'll see fantastic weather for mid-July to start the week as Canadian high pressure dominates the upper midwest. Temperatures will be a few degrees below normal in the upper 70s-low 80s & dewpoints in the 50s will be noticeably more comfortable than the bayou-like air we've seen over the past week. Low temperatures in the 50s will result in a couple nights of the fabled "good sleeping weather" for those looking to open the windows & give their AC a break."
The only day currently forecast to top 80 degrees next week in the Twin Cities is Monday, where the high will be a dry 82. The forecast highs the rest of the work week are amazing: 77 Tuesday, 78 Wednesday, 74 Thursday and 77 on Friday.
Rain is in the forecast sometime between Wednesday-Friday, where we could get a pretty good soaking, the NWS says.
But for now, enjoy 48-72 hours of near perfect summer weather.
