Grab your umbrella and rain boots, we're in for a soggy week.

Saturday was the last dry day for awhile, the National Weather Service says. Expect rain and cooler temperatures starting Sunday and lasting through next week.

Highs throughout the week will be near 50 degrees for the Twin Cities with overnight lows near 40 degrees, KARE 11 says.

Sunday's rain also caused the Minnesota Twins game against the Detroit Tigers to be postponed. No makeup date has been scheduled, according to the Twin's website.

It won't be all rain, though. A winter storm watch is in effect for parts of northern Minnesota from Sunday evening through Monday morning. Ice could accumulate, but amounts will vary. The highest ice accumulation amounts are expected to be from Clouquet to Duluth to near Finland, the weather service says.

Thankfully the skies are supposed to dry out by the weekend and temperatures are expected to be warmer, according to MPR News' Updraft blog. Temperatures could return to the 60s and possibly 70s by next weekend and into the following week, MPR notes.
