Overall, July has started off cooler than normal for Minneapolis, with high temperatures only reaching above the average of 84 twice. Those came earlier this week.

Thunderstorms will dampen the city both Saturday morning and throughout the day on Sunday.

Heading into next week, a passing shower or two may dampen the city on Monday but temperatures will drop, following the weekend thunderstorms.

Looking into next week, a stretch of cooler weather is expected as Typhoon Neoguri in the Pacific forces a cooling effect on the weather in the Midwest and East.
