Part of Minnesota’s appeal
is that it offers four distinct
seasons, each with its own
April-May features warming days, with
high temperatures in the Twin Cities
progressing from 50 degrees in early April
to the low 70s by the end of May. Trees
leaf out in bright greens, robins and other
migrating birds return, and tulips and
daffodils poke up from the earth.
June-August brings daytime
temperatures in the 70s and 80s (and
occasionally, in the 90s). The easygoing
days of summer boast daylight late into
the evening, with abundant sunshine to
brighten outdoor fun.
September-November brings cooling
temperatures, and with them, the bright
colors of trees and grasses as they
change from their lush summer green.
This time of transition starts with daytime
highs in the 70s, dropping to highs in the
30s by the end of November.
December-March here has earned a
reputation for its occasional extremes,
but the average winter day is quite
comfortable for outdoor activities like
skiing or snowmobiling. For instance, the
average high daytime temperature in the
Twin Cities in January, the coldest month,
is in the mid-20s.
AVERAGE TEMPERATURES (F°)
Since the state is 400 miles long, there is a
range of temperatures from south to north,
with slightly warmer temperatures south of
the Twin Cities and cooler temperatures in
the northern parts of the state.
