Sunday will see dew points increase offering almost a summer feel, and although temperatures will be a bit cooler than Saturday it will feel warmer thanks to the rise in humidity. The high in the Twin Cities will top out around 76 degrees, with upper 70s likely across much of the southern half of the state. Northern Minnesota will see highs in the low 70s and 60s on Sunday. 

There's also a chance for storms Sunday. Clouds will increase throughout the day, with storms possible Sunday night.
