A bright Sunday, cloud and sun mix Monday

Mild temperatures

Those strong, gusty winds of yesterday have been replaced by reasonable breezes today.

The low pressure system that was centered northeast of Lake Superior Saturday afternoon continues to move eastward, headed toward the eastern portion of the Great Lakes.

Northeastern Minnesota is still a bit breezy this morning, but those winds will ease up by afternoon.

Plenty of sunshine

Most of Minnesota will have plenty of sunshine today. Northeastern Minnesota has cloud cover Sunday morning, but those clouds should thin out and shift eastward Sunday afternoon.
