Monday will be mild with increasing clouds and morning fog in spots. Light snow showers and sprinkles will become possible later in the day as a clipper system moves through.
Mild week with minor precipitation chances
Monday will be mild with clouds increasing through the day. A dense fog advisory is posted for parts of central and western Minnesota through 10 a.m. Monday. Winds will be mild from the south at 5-10 mph.
A clipper system will bring clouds and some light snow showers and sprinkles later in the day and into Monday night. Precipitation is expected to be just scattered and only patchy light accumulation — if any — is likely.
Temperatures Monday night will dip into the 20s south and the teens in northwestern Minnesota.
Tuesday will be slightly cooler behind the clipper with northwest winds, but highs will still be above normal. Most will see afternoon highs in the 30s.
Even warmer air builds in for mid to late week. Widespread temperatures in the 40s and even 50s are possible in southwestern Minnesota Wednesday and Thursday.
Another clipper system and cold front will move through Thursday night into Friday bringing rain and snow showers mainly to the northern half of the state.
