It's one of those almost perfect weather days in Minnesota -- some sunshine, warm temperatures, low humidity and a nice breeze. Temperatures around the region generally hit the upper 70s to low 80s today, for a great start to the long holiday weekend.

Whatever you've got planned for Memorial Day weekend, the weather is going to cooperate for the most part, according to the KSTP. We'll see those summer-like temperatures for the next several days, although it's going to start feeling a little more humid by Sunday, and there's a chance for a few showers or a thunderstorm, mainly Sunday night and into Monday. But they shouldn't wash out any of your outdoor plans.

Here's the Twin Cities metro forecast, courtesy of the National Weather Service.
