Sunday looks to be a drier day with highs in the mid-50s.
“There is definitely a warming trend coming up,” she said.
Showers will return to Minneapolis early in the week.
On Monday, low pressure will return to the area and move off to the North, sparking a few showers and drizzle throughout the day.
