Minnesota weather: Midweek mellow leads to a dry day Wednesday

A dry and mild day is in store for the last day of spring.

Our latest round of rain on Tuesday pushed out to the east, but there could be some redevelopment near the Iowa border. However, most of the state gets a break from the rain, for at least the day, before another round of showers arrives on Thursday. 

Temperatures are cooler for the last day of spring with a high of 73 degrees and a light breeze out of the northwest. High clouds linger, allowing for filtered sunshine Wednesday afternoon and into the evening. 

Into the overnight hours, temperatures cool into the 60s, and the cloud coverage increases as another round of showers moves in from the southwest. Much of the rain will stay in southern Minnesota, but the Twin Cities could see a scattered shower or two on Thursday. 

The next chance for more persistent rainfall and thunderstorms in the greater metro area is early Friday morning, with chances for additional rounds later in the day and into Saturday morning.  

While Saturday morning might be a little wet, later in the day and Sunday should be dry for a pleasant weekend. Temperatures return closer to seasonable on Friday with highs in the 80s, which follows us into the week.
