I hope you made the most of the weekend. We had fantastic weather both Saturday and Sunday all across the state as high pressure prevailed.
A weak cold-front moved in late Friday that brought some scattered showers to the region. On the backside of this system we experienced low humidity and very comfortable temperatures over the weekend. High temperatures both days were in the 60s and low to mid 70s.
We started off the week on a chilly note Monday morning as northern Minnesota had a frost advisory. Temperatures dropped into the 30s across parts of northern Minnesota.
This cooler weather was short-lived as high temperatures Monday climbed back into the low to mid 80s. Some scattered showers and thunderstorms were back in the forecast.
It should be quiet and warm for the midweek with lots of sunshine. Highs should reach the low to mid 80s on Wednesday and Thursday. Rain chances should hold off until the weekend.
Congraulations to all the graduates, and welcome to the start of meteorological summer as of
