Overall, it's going to be a dreary, wet and windy Monday with bouts of showers and thunderstorms and winds gusting up to 30 mph out of the northwest. The daytime high isn't expected to climb more than a couple degrees above 50, if we're lucky enough to even get that warm

Here's the simulated future radar for the rest of the day. Again, just some heavy downpours with spotty lightning, nothing severe is expected.

The rest of the week looks pretty nice. 

Tuesday: Sunny with highs in the 60s. 

Wednesday: Partly cloudy with highs in the 70s. 

Thursday: Mostly sunny with highs in the 60s. 

Friday: Mostly sunny with highs in the 60s. 

The National Weather Service then has its eye on what could be another soaker-type storm system moving through Minnesota over the weekend. It's too early to get into details, but the system could bring anything from stormy weather to a very cold rain with temps in the 30s and 40s.
