The storm system that brought Minnesota showers and thunderstorms Monday has continued its trek eastward, and now high pressure is building over the state. 

That has returned clear skies across the state, and with a continued northerly flow behind Monday’s cold front, most of the state is starting Tuesday in the 40s, with a few low 50s.

Breezy northwest winds continue during the day, keeping highs slightly below average, with almost the entire state in the 60s under mostly sunny skies.

Sunshine prevails most of the week, and some areas could see mornings with frost. 

That extended forecast will be updated around 9 a.m.
