The weather the rest of July? Pretty much perfect

We deserve it!
Publish date:

Minnesota has been victim to torrential rain, flash flooding, extreme heat and humidity and even a few tornadoes this summer, but Mother Nature is going to play nice between now and the end of the month. 

According to the National Weather Service, most of Minnesota is looking at below normal temperatures and mostly dry conditions over the next week. 

In the Twin Cities, there's a slight chance for some rain and thunder late Monday, but other than that the forecast looks dry with temperatures in the low 80s Sunday through Wednesday followed by some gorgeous mid to upper 70s through the end of July. 

Even Duluth, typically cooler than the Twin Cities and other parts of the state, will be treated with beautiful conditions, with high temperatures anywhere from 70-80 degrees with the only rain in sight coming Wednesday – and that's not a sure thing. 

Mankato? Perfect. Highs in the 70s and low 80s over the next 10 days with nary a drop of rain in sight.

Bottom line. If you've got plans to get outside over the next week or so, do it and plan with confidence because the forecast looks amazing for what's generally one of the hottest stretches of the year in Minnesota.
