Interesting question. The cities share a border so I think the temperature is about the same in both.

The coldest I have ever been in my life was one March when I went to a wedding in Superior WI across from Duluth MN The icicles were the size of tree trunks.. Sure hope it's not that cold in St Paul

Sometimes places that are close by may have a slightly different climate due to protection by a mountain...

St. Paul's and Minneapolis' downtowns are literally minutes apart, and the cities actually touch each other in certain parts ... so yeah, you could say they're as cold as one another in the winter time.

Hello Kristal Kraft,
Good morning.
Easy question. The 2 Cities " the Twin Cities" are right next to each other so . . . YES the same temperature. Do you still live in CO? Looking to move to MN? Are you still in the market to buy a home? If so, I would love to see if we can help you out. Do you have a realtor yet? If not we have preferred ones we can get you in contact with. I would like to see if I can help you out with a home mortgage. I will try and make this a very easy process. Please let me know how to help out.
Thanks much.

Yes, they are the same. Though it gets colder the further out from the cities one is, due to the "urban heat island effect".

Depends who you ask. Both Cities are very competitive so I would say that you will get a different answer from the residents in each. They in effect touch each other so should be the same.

Yes they are the same. The tempeture readings are taken at the Minneapolis/St. Paul international airport.
