Most of us are likely on the bandwagon of enjoying the cooler, much-less-humid air that filtered across Minnesota Saturday night. 

Sunday is underway with dew points in the 50s to low 60s statewide.

Skies cleared over most of the state Saturday night, but clouds are building again from the southwest.

Sunday will bring high temperatures mainly in the 70s. The Twin Cities should have a high around 80 with a light northwest wind.

Clouds will increase northeastward today. An upper air disturbance from the Dakotas will probably bump up a few isolated afternoon thundershowers. Severe weather is not expected.

Pleasant weather well into this coming week

High pressure will dominate much of the work week. Temperatures and humidities will remain comfortable for July and skies should remain storm-free from Monday through at least Wednesday.

Unsettled later this week

Heat and humidity will build a bit by Thursday and Friday. Disturbances aloft are likely to trigger some thunderstorms late in the week, especially on Friday.

Not too much rain, though

Storms later in the week are not likely to dump the torrential rains we have been soaked with recently. Total forecast 7-day rainfall into next Sunday morning is likely to be well less than an inch for most of the state.
