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.
