A bright Sunday; shower chance Monday afternoon

Milder temps today and Monday

It was a chilly start to our Sunday.

The morning low temperatures were in the upper 20s to lower 30s across most of Minnesota and western Wisconsin. A few spots in northwestern Minnesota dipped into the lower 20s.

Temperatures will recover nicely Sunday afternoon, with highs around 60 to the lower 60s in much of the southern half of Minnesota and in the Red River Valley of northwestern Minnesota:
