Relief from chilly May to arrive in full force next week

How does a string of days with temps in the 70s sound?

Seasonal temperatures are finally in the extended forecast, meaning we can soon blow the gloomy weather a kiss and enjoy some May-like 70-degree bliss. 

Waking up to temps in the upper 30s in the Twin Cities on May 10 will eventually turn into a decent Friday with a high near 60 and just an outside chance at a shower or two in the afternoon. 

The weekend, sponsored by Pet Evolution, will begin to warm up even more, although rain chances still exist. 


Not a total washout, but there could be some rain with rumbles of thunder moving through the state Saturday afternoon and evening. Those showers could linger into Sunday morning. 

Fishing during the opener should be mostly dry, at least for the first half of the day. Here's the simulated future radar (may not work in some browsers) from 10 a.m. Saturday through 1 p.m. Sunday. 


Temperatures Saturday climb into the 60s and before cooling down a bit for Sunday, and that will be followed by a week filled with temperatures in the 70s – maybe even some 80s for parts of southern Minnesota. 

Look at this graphic. If it verifies, Monday's high of 68 will be the lowest high temp of the week. That's like, totally, the kind of weather you can, like, wear T-shirts and shorts in.
