Delightful Sunday; warmer weather but little rain coming

Fog across central and northern Minnesota has been lifting. However, the dense fog advisory for much of north central and northeastern Minnesota has been extended until 11 a.m. Sunday.

Then a comfy Sunday

High pressure advancing slowly into Minnesota will bring a fine mid-September day to Minnesota. Meanwhile, the East seems poised for more unwanted rain.

Expect dry skies, seasonable temperatures and a light northerly breeze for Sunday afternoon. Southern Minnesota will see ample sunshine while areas of clouds hang around the north. High temperatures will be from the mid 60s to low 70s. The Twin Cities should have a high near 72.

Warmer days coming

Warmer air will build into Minnesota beginning on Monday with highs from the 60s in the northeast to 70s over most of the state and some low 80s in the southwest. The Twin Cities should reach the mid 70s.

Look for highs in the 70s to low and mid 80s on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and probably Friday from this slow-moving weather pattern.

Temperatures will fall slowly back to closer to normal for next weekend.

Chances of needed rain?

No impressive rainmakers appear to be in our weather menu. Showers from Iowa might graze southeastern Minnesota Monday night.

Isolated showers are possible for a few of us on Wednesday.

Better chances of at least scattered showers might come our way at times from Friday through the weekend. But the pattern does not look convincing as of now.
