After soaking rains over the weekend, we’re not done yet. Look for scattered lingering showers, thunder Monday. Summer temperatures return by late in the week.

More scattered showers Monday and cooler

The weekend storm system will be slow to exit the region. It’s what we call a ‘cut-off’ upper level low, literally ‘cut-off’ from the main flow and steering winds of the atmosphere. Clouds and moisture will continue to linger midweek for southern Minnesota. Expect more scattered showers and even thunderstorms Monday into Monday night.
