If you like 80 degrees and sunny skies, you're going to love this week in Minnesota

The only real complaint? It will feel more humid.
Publish date:

While the east coast is bracing for Hurricane Florence approaching from the Atlantic Ocean, people in land-locked states in the Upper Midwest can pretty much delete their weather apps for the next four days and enjoy mostly spectacular weather. 

In Minnesota, Monday through Thursday are setting up as near perfect weather days. The only complaints anyone could possibly have is that there might be some clouds around on Monday, and maybe a passing shower or two in the northern half of the state. 

Then on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday you might run into some "it's humid outside" comments, as dew points rising into the 60s will make for some noticeable humidity differences, especially after the string of beautiful days we've had of late. 

The only real precipitation chances are for a shower or two on Monday and then again a slight risk of a passing t-storm in northern and central Minnesota on Tuesday. Otherwise, it's going to be dry pretty much everywhere throughout the state until our next shot at rain and storms arrives Friday into the weekend. 

And then we could be in for a cooling period as a cold front is expected to sweep through bringing below normal temperatures to Minnesota early next week. We're not talking about a big freeze or anything, but cooler weather is certainly possible.
