Temperatures stay above average Monday, but for most places, it will be noticeably cooler weather than the heat of Sunday.
Behind a cold front that moved through on Sunday, the state is starting Monday off with seasonable temperatures for mid-June, ranging from a few 40s in the Arrowhead to 60s in southern Minnesota.
Despite winds out of the north throughout the day, most of the state will be slightly above average Monday, with highs predominantly in the 80s.
However, for central and northern Minnesota especially, this is markedly cooler than the 90s of Sunday.
A few isolated showers are clipping the very southwestern edge of Minnesota early Monday, but otherwise it will be another day of widespread sunshine across the state. Dew points remain lower, in the 40s and 50s, meaning our afternoon relative humidity stays low again.
Rain chances are limited in the week ahead, but Thursday will bring some areas needed precipitation. That extended forecast will be updated around 9 a.m.
