Sunday will be warm in the metro, cooler to the west and north.
Publish date:

Morning showers in eastern Minnesota have given way to sunshine in the southern half of the state and result is temps soaring into the 70s in the Twins Cities on Sunday afternoon, possibly to 80 degrees in areas further south, including Mankato and Rochester.  

Areas west and northwest of the Twin Cities won't be as warm, with high temps in Marshall, Madison, Willmar, St. Cloud and Alexandria in the 50s and 60s.

Enjoy it the dry conditions while they last because another round of soaking rains is expected overnight and through the day Monday, with upwards of an inch of rain possible from southwest parts of the state up through central Minnesota and into northern Wisconsin. 


The National Weather Service notes that "rainfall amounts of 1-2" will likely aggravate flooding along areas rivers that are still flowing high from a wet April."

Here's a one computer model's simulation of what could happen between 6 p.m. Sunday and 10 p.m. Monday. It shows what could be a rumbly Monday in parts of the metro.


Things dry out Monday night and the rest of the week should present high temps in the 60s.
