Minnesota weather: Scattered showers and coolish Memorial Day

Memorial Day will be on the cooler side with some scattered showers, but the day won’t be a total washout.

Enjoy a bright and dry beginning to Memorial Day. However, clouds will roll in, bringing scattered showers by late morning or early afternoon for the Twin Cities metro. 

The initial showers will fade but will redevelop in the afternoon. Thunderstorms are tracking west to east this afternoon. Funnel clouds, winds of 30 to 50 mph, and penny-size hail are all possible with these storms, but the storms are not expected to reach severe status. 

Temperatures remain on the cooler side for Memorial Day, with a high of 67 degrees in the metro area. Overnight, a lingering drip is possible as temperatures cool into the 50s with passing clouds.

On Tuesday, northwest breezes pick up, and scattered showers redevelop in the afternoon along the Interstate 35 corridor. Things dry out and warm up slightly for Wednesday and Thursday with highs in the 70s. 

The end of the week turns unsettled, and there is a chance for more showers heading into the weekend.
