Wet weather returns for the work week

Have an umbrella handy this week. After another mild day to finish the weekend, wet weather returns for the work week.

Temperatures are expected to be 15-20 degrees above normal Sunday, with highs in the 50s and 60s across the state, but clouds will increase at night as a low-pressure system moves into the region, the National Weather Service says.

Cloudy skies with periods of rain – and even a few rumbles of thunder – are expected from Monday through Wednesday.

Temperatures will still be mild Monday, but cooler air "surges in" from the north later in the week, which will likely change that rain into a wintry mix, the weather service notes. (But don't worry, you won't need a shovel, meteorologist Todd Nelson wrote on the Star Tribune's weather blog.)

Minnesotans will get a real taste of winter next weekend, as several weather models are predicting highs in the 20s and 30s, the weather service adds.

The average temperature in the Twin Cities for November is 41 degrees, according to U.S. Climate Data.
