Monday brings mild temperatures, more clouds and a couple chances for rain.
Minnesota is starting off very mild Monday morning, with temperatures across the entire state in the 30s and 40s. Temperatures will remain above average through the day, with much of the state making it into the 50s and a few parts of southern Minnesota seeing low 60s.
The warm air advection across the state is providing enough lift in the atmosphere to bring widespread cloud cover and produce some occasional light rain or sprinkles. The best chance for seeing light rain is in northern Minnesota during the morning hours. Here is the radar as of 6:28 a.m. showing the current areas of light rain.
The entire state keeps a very isolated chance for a light shower or sprinkle anytime Monday, and it will remain mostly cloudy all day. Overall though, Monday remains mild and predominantly dry, so it will still be a good day for outdoor time.
Late Monday into early Tuesday, a weather disturbance moves across the state bringing a more widespread chance for showers and possibly a few thunderstorms.
That extended forecast will be updated around 9 a.m.
