Despite sunny skies to start the week, clouds and rain showers will dampen Minneapolis through most of the weekend.

Partly sunny skies will be present on Saturday for Twins fans, but rain and clouds will roll back into the city for Sunday's game. Rain delays are possible as showers are expected through the evening hours.

Overnight Sunday, temperatures will again drop down into lower 40s while rain persists, possibly with a few rumbles of thunder.

Heading into next week, temperatures are forecast to remain in the 50s much of the time.

The city will continue to see the chance of a shower each day as well.
