That's more like it: 70s in the forecast for this week

You can take the blankets off your plants.

Warmer temperatures are in the forecast following this weekend's frost advisories and freeze warnings, which will expire by 9 a.m. Sunday.

Overnight temperatures dipped into the 20s throughout much of central and northern Minnesota, the National Weather Service says. But temperatures will moderate this week thanks to a change in the weather pattern.

The average temperature this time of year in the Twin Cities is around 70 degrees, and the weather service is predicting temperatures will climb to around that by mid-week for much of Minnesota.

There's "nothing to yell about" with the forecast this week, the National Weather Service says. Apart from some widely scattered showers on Monday, expect it to be mostly dry and sunny.

And it looks like we'll see above-average temperatures for the end of the month:
