Continued: Summer slump: Twin Cities temperatures may dip to 40s next week

They may get their chance — during the Vikings’ season, said Mark Seeley, climatologist with the University of Minnesota Extension Services. He’s predicting a mild fall and winter.

“El Niño’s gonna take over,” he said.

For now, though, Seeley said a “serious buckle” in the jet stream will bring in Canadian air.

Frost threat?

“Gardeners are asking about a frost threat,” he said.

It won’t be that bad. For the day of the All-Star Game, Seeley forecasts high temperatures between 64 and 69. But this year, anything is possible, he said.

“On March 31, for the first time in Minnesota history, we had one county — Lac qui Parle County — that was under a tornado warning and a blizzard warning on the same day,” Seeley said. “Now, that’s crazy.”

Eric Smith, 45, of St. Paul, strolled downtown Minneapolis in short sleeves Friday. Next week, he may dress differently.

“It doesn’t bother me and I don’t see why anyone should be surprised by the unseasonal, unpredictable weather around here,” he said.

“For the out-of-town visitors next week, this will just add to the mystique.”
