MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – We have an upper-level area of low pressure positioned over the Dakotas to thank for this dreary and cool start to the weekend! Expect a chance for isolated showers to re-develop tonight as the low continues to spin off pulses of energy.
The upper low will exit north on Sunday, allowing warmer air to build in, which will help high temperatures to rebound to near 60 degrees by the afternoon.
As one system clears out, our next weather system will move in from the south, quickly bringing the chance of showers back to the forecast. Scattered shower activity to be confined mainly to south-eastern Minnesota and western Wisconsin on Sunday. The Twin Cities Metro is on the periphery of the rain threat, with the best chance of showers to be across the southeast Metro Sunday afternoon.
The warm-up will continue into the work week with highs in the mid to upper 70’s for the start of May on Tuesday, but that warmth will be ushered in ahead of a potent area of low pressure that may bring strong thunderstorms late-day Tuesday into Tuesday night.
