A lovely May day

Today’s weather is about the way you would draw it up for this time of year. Temperatures will be close to seasonal normals. Low dew points and a bit of a breeze will make it feel a little on the cool side in the shade.

A few fair weather cumulus clouds formed this morning to decorate the sky in southern Minnesota. High clouds will mute the sunshine a tad this afternoon.
