Sunday (Father's Day) will be cooler, with forecast highs in the lower 70s and isolated showers. Things will dry-out Monday, but the week should start cooler than normal for mid-June.

It's been a very warm first half of June this year -- not a single day below average so far. This marks the warmest to June on record for the Twin Cities dating back nearly 150 years, to 1872.
