Your forecast for parts of MN,and WI

Forecast concerns for today through Monday...Thunderstorms,along with locally heavy rainfall,and temps...Lots to talk about once again, so lets get after it.
Current Conditions.
Temps are starting out rather warm this early morning...Middle to upper 50s,along with some lower 60s showing up on the SFC OBS...Dewpoints are rather close to the air temps so it's on the muggy side this morning.Some stations are reporting some fog....Radar is showing a large area of showers and thunderstorms..The area of showers and thunderstorms runs from parts of Cook County back into Lake County along with St.Louis County then up into Koochiching,Itasca,Cass,Hubbard,Beltrami,and Wadena Counties of MN..The showers and storms are moving North/Northeast...
Warm front will keep pushing North and should clear the MN FA by the late afternoon hours...This should help put an end to the showers and storms for a time,We could even see some peaks of sun through out the MN FA...Over in WI Thinking is showers and storms should hold off until tonight,however with the high moisture and some sun I sure would not be shocked to see a few ISO showers/storms around this afternoon...The whole FA will be in the warm sector of the storm system so temps will reflect this in the forecast...60s and 70s...With the warmer temps found over in WI zones...We might see temps here get close to 80...However I kept them in the middle 70s...
Tonight through Monday night.
Strong cold front will works it's way into the area as a low pressure moves towards the Northeast into Canada...PWS will increase to around 1.50 to 1.75 through out the area,WV satellite showing tropical moisture still flowing into the area along with the leftovers of hurricane Norbert...So showers and thunderstorms will be likely through this period...Locally heavy rainfall is possible through out the FA...No severe weather is forecasted from the thunderstorms....
Tuesday through Friday.
Temps take a dive through mid week...Highs in the 50s lows in the 30s,however it shall be dry...Next chance of rain looks to come into play Thursday night into Friday.
