Weather in Minneapolis-St Paul

Winter in the Twin Cities is brutal. Average temperatures are around -10°C (13.5°F). To combat the cold and snow, both cities have an extensive system of enclosed ‘skyways’ that connect Downtown buildings and enable pedestrians to move about easily, without braving the weather. It’s not all doom and gloom in winter though, the massive Holidazzle Village brings Christmas to life with rides, reindeers, refreshments and more. Temperatures in summer average around 22.5°C (73°F). Annual rainfall is 660mm (26 inches).
