This weather is what we've all been waiting for, especially businesses with those outdoor patios.

The temperature officially hit 70 degrees at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport Friday afternoon. That's the first time we've hit 70 since October 2012.

Many will get outside to enjoy the sun and warm temperatures.
Outdoor patios at restaurants across the Twin Cities will bring in big business this weekend.

Meet Minneapolis tells us many restaurants opened their patios Friday for the first time.

At Stellas Café in Uptown, another outdoor dining hot spot, they expect to be packed. The rooftop opened for the season at 11a.m. Friday.

They added a lot of staff for the season to cover all the extra tables.
