A few isolated showers or sprinkles will move across Minnesota during the day, but the weather will remain predominantly dry until light rain becomes more widespread Wednesday evening.

Wednesday’s forecast

Wednesday is starting off very mild again, with most of the state seeing morning temperatures in the 30s. Highs will also be above average, ranging from the 40s in northern Minnesota to possible 60s in the southwest corner of the state.

More clouds have moved in, so the day will be partly to mostly cloudy, although most of the state will still see breaks of sunshine.

As of 7 a.m., a few rain showers are passing through southern Minnesota.
