Rain today; chilly this week; 70 again next week?

Here comes the rain again. That Annie Lennox song is stuck in my head. Showers linger much of today across Minnesota.

The rain comes with cooler temperatures. Monday night’s cold front blew in temperatures in the 50s. Wednesday looks sunny and slightly milder with highs in the lower 60s. After a run of 50s into the weekend, we return to the 60s, and possibly 70 degrees by next Tuesday.

I think the model below is conservative for next Tuesday.
