MINNEAPOLIS -- We topped out at 78 degrees today, one degree above the average high for the first day of September. A few showers are pushing across the state from west to east that will move through tonight. Otherwise partly cloudy overnight with temperatures dropping to around 61 degrees for the bus stop on Tuesday morning.

Tuesday will be beautiful with temps early starting in the lower 60s and afternoon highs in the upper 70s. We'll see a brief warm up Wednesday-Thursday with highs back well into the 80s. Look for a few thunderstorms Wednesday night that linger into Thursday. By next weekend it will be much cooler with highs just in the low 70s!
