Following a cloudy and soggy weekend, Monday brings widespread sunshine.
After much of Minnesota saw a gray, windy, wet, and even snowy weekend, Monday sees the return of far quieter weather.
Northwestern Minnesota, particularly near the Red River Valley, is dealing with some areas of dense fog to start the day that should lift by midmorning. That has prompted a dense fog advisory until 10 a.m.
Otherwise, skies have cleared, and the entire state will see plentiful sunshine all of Monday.
Temperatures will also be noticeably warmer. Morning temperatures are in the 20s and 30s, and other than a few parts of northern Minnesota, the whole state will make it into the 50s.
That will put most of the state 5 to 10 degrees above average.
Winds are also lighter, meaning wind chill is not a concern.
It will be a great day to spend time outside!
More rain returns midweek. That extended forecast will be updated around 9 a.m.
