It'll be warm and windy, but much less humid today

Publish date:

We'll get a break from the humidity on Sunday.

Thunderstorms that swept through some of the state Saturday exited overnight, leaving slightly cooler and drier air in its wake, the National Weather Service says.

High temperatures Sunday will range from 70 degrees in northwestern Minnesota, while upper 80s are expected in the southeastern part of the state.

It will feel "noticeably less humid," the National Weather Service says. Dewpoints will be about 20 degrees lower than they were on Saturday.

And it'll be breezy – wind gusts as high as 30 mph are possible Sunday.

There's also a chance for some showers in far northern Minnesota Sunday afternoon, but otherwise most people will stay dry.

Cooler and dry this week

Temperatures on Monday will be slightly cooler, with highs ranging from the 60s in the north to the mid-70s in the southern part of the state.

The cooler weather is expected to stick around for much of the work week, the weather service says.

The next chance for rain comes late Wednesday into Thursday.
