Chilly for the Twins home opener, but warmer temps are on the way

Spring-like temperatures are on the way – we just have to get through one more cold day.

After a chilly weekend (temperatures were in the teens in northern Minnesota Saturday), it'll feel a little warmer on Sunday.

Highs Sunday afternoon are expected to range from the upper 30s in northern Minnesota to the lower 50s in the southern part of the state, the National Weather Service says.

But a cold front that's pushing into the region will force temperatures to dip Monday before it really starts to feel like spring.

The National Weather Service says temperatures will be around 20 degrees below normal Monday, when highs will be "struggling" to reach 40 degrees for the Twins home opener.

Here's a look at the high temperatures for Monday around the state:

But after that blast of chilly weather, high temps will be "consistently making runs" for 70 degrees to end the week, the weather service notes.

Northern Minnesota will also see some above-average temperatures, just not quite as warm as the southern part of the state. The Duluth area is expected to see temps in the lower 50s, while it'll get up into the 60s in northwestern Minnesota, according to the National Weather Service.

The average temperature this time of year is in the mid-50s for Minneapolis, Weather Spark says.

And besides a little rain and snow in northern Minnesota on Sunday, the weather service says we can expect a pretty "uneventful week" weather-wise, with skies being partly cloudy for the second half of the week.
