The workweek will be a mostly sunny one for Minneapolis, but clouds and some rain will roll in just in time for the weekend.

Temperatures reached 74 degrees Wednesday with some sunshine, making the day feel very similar to the past couple of days.

Thursday and Friday will feel summerlike, despite the beginning of fall last week, with high temperatures soaring to near 80 degrees. Nighttime lows will not drop below 60 degrees, giving the city a mild reminder of summer days past.

Friday will bring the chance for an afternoon thunderstorm, but the real rain will come Saturday. The high temperature Saturday will be a noticeable drop from midweek, and as much as ten degrees cooler than Friday thanks to the rain.

Sunshine will return by Sunday and Monday with afternoon temperatures getting back into the 70s.
