.DISCUSSION...

Today will see increasing clouds with a chance for some light rain
showers or sprinkles, but most locations will stay dry. The best
chance of rain is in western Minnesota. Winds will be northerly all
day, but become calm overnight and light and variable for Wednesday.
Looking ahead, there is another chance for rain Thursday, but this
system is trending drier as well. Warmer and more breezy conditions
are on tap for the weekend, with perhaps some widespread rain early
next week.
