Sunshine gradually returns Tuesday

Northeastern Minnesota sees spotty showers

Behind a storm system that brought showers and thunderstorms overnight Monday, skies slowly clear Tuesday, keeping highs slightly below average.

Tuesday’s forecast

A storm that slid across southern Minnesota, bringing showers and storms to almost all of Minnesota has now cleared east.

Only the Arrowhead will see a few lingering showers during the day Tuesday. 

Skies are still cloudy behind that storm as of 7 a.m. This kept overnight temperatures higher, with almost all of Minnesota starting Tuesday in the 50s, which is slightly above average.

However, the cloudy skies also limit daytime warming, so highs are expected to be a couple degrees below average, with most of Minnesota in the upper 60s or low 70s.

The clouds clear west to east during the day, putting most of Minnesota back under more sunshine by late afternoon.

Temperatures rise the next two days before another storm cools our weather again.  That extended forecast will be updated around 9 a.m.
