Temperatures stick near average Monday

The North Shore sees a few morning showers.

Minnesota sees a fairly quiet day Monday, with seasonable temperatures and dry skies for most of the state.

Monday’s forecast

Under the influence of high pressure, the state is seeing a tranquil weather day Monday.

Clear skies dropped morning temperatures into the 20s north and 30s south, which is very near to average for late October. Highs will also be seasonable, with temperatures ranging from the mid-40s north to low 50s south.

Skies stay dry, with more sunshine into the afternoon.

The one exception is along the North Shore, the wind pattern is drawing in a few light rain showers and perhaps even a flurry Monday morning, plus more clouds in general across the Arrowhead Monday. 

Winds pick up Tuesday ahead of a very wet storm that targets Minnesota Wednesday.

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