Minneapolis/St. Paul forecast from the KARE 11 weather team.


MINNEAPOLIS - A beautiful, but cooler Earth Day today. Temperatures are starting out chilly around 40 across the metro early Tuesday. Winds are lighter, however. Expect northwest winds 5-10 mph today with afternoon highs right around 60 (61 is the normal high).

Tonight the clouds will increase as the next system brings a good bet of showers & thunder already by midday Wednesday into Wednesday night and early Thursday. High temperatures will cool off into the 50s tomorrow with the clouds and showers with temps near 60 Thursday if we can squeeze out a few breaks in the clouds. Cooler air moves in behind it all for the weekend with highs just in the lower 50s.
