This past weekend felt more like summer than the end of September, but temperatures will be more normal for the work week. 

Showers – with some thunderstorms – are expected across central and southern Minnesota for most of Monday, although the threat of anything severe is low, the National Weather Service says

Even though the forecast is showing temps that are usual for this time of year, it'll probably feel a little chilly after the three days of record (or near record) breaking temperatures we've had across much of Minnesota – and the upper Midwest. 

The Twin Cities saw three days of 90 degree temps from Friday-Sunday, marking the latest 90-degree streak on record, the National Weather Service says

While some cities, like Green Bay, Wisconsin, had their first 90-degree day of the year over the weekend, the National Weather Service tweeted.

Michelle Margraf, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, spoke to the Star Tribune about this weekend's "unusual" weather, saying the country's weather patter has been stuck because of all the tropical storms in the Atlantic Ocean.

March heat wave continues to shatter records

It's crazy. But it keeps happening. Insanely warm March weather broke records again this weekend. The Twin Cities had the earliest-ever 80-degree reading. Even the nation's icebox - International Falls - turned in a steamy 77 degrees, breaking the previous record for the date by 22 degrees. Duluth, Fargo, Rochester, St. Cloud, and Winona all set records, as well. Some much needed rain is expected late Sunday through Wednesday, with temperatures cooling down in the 60s for most of the work week.
