Summer-like Sunday: Humid with a chance of storms this afternoon


A more summer-like day is in the forecast Sunday, but with that comes a chance for scattered thunderstorms in the afternoon.

Thunderstorms – some of which could be severe – are expected to develop across western Minnesota Sunday afternoon ahead of a cold front, the National Weather Service says, but they are expected to weaken as the move east overnight.

“Some of the storms could be strong between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.,” KSTP meteorologist Jonathan Yuhas says.

People in the southeastern and northeastern parts of the state woke up to some dense fog Sunday, but it's expected to clear out by late morning, the weather service notes, as sunshine returns.

Rain showers and possibly some thunderstorms are expected to move in from the west Sunday.

Showers are expected to move in from the west. The Moorhead area can expect showers after 10 a.m., the weather service notes, while those in Duluth could see rain in the afternoon.

Southeastern Minnesota could also see some rain Sunday afternoon.

Sun, storms in the week ahead

An unsettled weather pattern is in place for much of Minnesota this week, AccuWeather notes, with Sunday looking as the warmest and most humid day of the upcoming week.

Temperatures will be around normal (roughly 80 degrees in the Twin Cities, while slightly cooler in the northland) to kick off the week, as sunny skies and lower humidity is expected through Tuesday, AccuWeather says, before wet weather returns for much of the state Wednesday, the weather service notes.

There's a 90 percent chance of thunderstorms in the Twin Cities Wednesday, Yuhas notes. Sunshine is expected to return Thursday, the weather service says.
