There have been wild swings in temperature over the past week across Minnesota, and that will be the case again for the next week.

The battle zone between very cold air to the north and warm air to the south will set up right across the state of Minnesota over the next several days. The coldest air will stay well north of the Twin Cities.

After some sunshine Wednesday, expect similar weather today and Friday. Temperatures will stay cool through the end of the week.

The warmer air will really start to move in by Saturday. As it does so, there will be a great deal of clouds and even a rain shower or two.

Monday will be the peak of the warmth as temperatures get into the 50s across southern Minnesota.

It won't last, though. A blast of arctic air will cause temperatures to plummet by Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.
