When Does Spring Start in Minneapolis?

When Does Winter End in Minneapolis? When is Spring Going to Start?


The winter is dragging on and on. It's cold and it's gray and it's miserable. When is spring going to start?

It can't come soon enough, right? Spring in Minneapolis and St. Paul is often frustratingly slow to arrive. Traditional spring months in other parts of the country, like March, are mostly below freezing.

April is usually the first month to have tantalizingly warm days. The weather is very unpredictable. In mid April you could be wearing shorts, or it could be snowing.

By late April or early May, it's usually spring for sure, and by late May it's summer. Then we shall all be complaining it's too hot and too humid and dang these mosquitoes. But at least the snow is gone, right?
