Weather Summary for Minnesota
National Weather Service Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
300 AM CDT Sun Jul 16 2017

Mainly clear skies prevailed overnight on the backside of a
departing cold front. Cooler and drier air built into the region
behind the front along with high pressure which will keep mostly
clear skies in place for the state today and tonight. Low
temperatures this morning will range from the lower 50s up north to
the mid 60s along the Iowa border. Highs today will generally climb
to the mid 70s to lower 70s, although highs near Lake Superior will
run close to 70.

Mostly clear skies are expected statewide tonight which should make
for good viewing conditions for the expected Northern Lights. Skies
will then start out mostly clear tomorrow with clouds building in
late in the day. Warmer and more humid conditions are expected
tomorrow with highs mainly in the mid 80s to mid 90s, cooler near
the lake, and with dewpoints again hitting the mid 60s to lower 70s
for much of the state.

Periods of showers and thunderstorms return starting Monday night
and lasting through Wednesday night as a frontal system slowly
crosses over the region. Both severe weather and excessive rainfall
are potential hazards with this system. Rainfall totals for southern
Minnesota could top 2 inches. Highs will mainly run in the upper 70s
to mid 80s while lows run from the mid 50s to mid 60s.
