Minneapolis: Chilly Air to Slash September-like Warmth by Late Week

Warmth will be erased as wetter and cooler weather arrives in Minneapolis by the end of the week.

Record-challenging warmth, with temperatures more typical of the middle of September, surged across the region early this week.

However, a storm system will usher in temperatures more seasonable for the month of November by Thursday and Friday.

Showers, with intermittent periods of heavier rain, will accompany the temperature drop on Thursday.

The wet weather won't stick around for long though, as drier conditions will begin to build back in Thursday night into the day on Friday.

Afternoon highs will be in the upper 60s on Thursday, but highs will take a nosedive into the lower 50s by Friday. Temperatures will continue to plummet into the upper 40s by Saturday.

High pressure will keep conditions dry and bright in the city for the weekend, with mostly sunny skies expected on Saturday and Sunday.

If you are heading out to see Rick Springfield at the Mystic Lake Casino or Jim Gaffigan at State Theatre this weekend, pack the winter jacket as AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperatures will be dropping in the lower 30s during the evenings.

The second half of weekend will moderate, with highs climbing back into the 50s. It will remain mild through the start of next week.
