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.
