Another beautiful day before rain, scattered storms move in

Author:

Sunday is expected to be another one of those "this is why we live here" days, before rain and scattered storms move through the state Sunday night into Monday.

Temperatures are expected to rise into the lower 80s for much of the state, KARE 11 says. An isolated shower or thunderstorm is possible in the late afternoon and evening. The majority of the wet weather is expected in the west and south of the state, especially the Moorhead area, the news station notes.

There will also be a hint more humidity in the air, compared to Saturday's near-perfect weather, KSTP reports. On Saturday, for the first time in 236 days, temperatures hit 80 degrees – the last 80-degree day was Sept. 30, 2013 in the Twin Cities.

The National Weather Service says there's a better chance of storms Monday and Tuesday. Temperatures are expected to be in the upper 70s and lower 80s for the remainder of the week. KARE 11 says Memorial Day shouldn't be a total "wash-out," but scattered storms are possible.

Here's a glimpse of the forecast around the state:

Twin Cities: Sunday: Mostly sunny, high near 81. A 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms mainly after midnight. Monday: A 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, high near 83.
