Areas of morning fog; afternoon shower chance far northern Minnesota

Temps rebound a bit

A high pressure system is moving into Minnesota, and our winds lightened up overnight. The light winds allowed areas of dense fog to develop.

A dense fog advisory continues until 10 a.m. this Sunday from central Minnesota into northeastern Minnesota:

Any rain today?

Areas with dense fog could see patchy mist or drizzle at times this morning. Rain chances this afternoon and evening would be mainly in north-central and northeastern Minnesota, where an isolated thunderstorm is also possible.


Sunday highs will be in the 70s in many areas, with parts of northwestern Minnesota reaching the lower 80s:

Upper 70s are expected in much of the metro area, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see an 80 somewhere in the metro.

Sunday afternoon dew points will be in the upper 50s to lower 60s:
