Warm again Tuesday then showers developing

Enjoy another day well into the 70s for afternoon highs across southern Minnesota after an incredibly mild start with temperatures mainly in the 50s to near 60.

Skies will be partly cloudy but showers will develop late in the day to the west and that chance of some scattered showers spreads east Wednesday ahead of a very potent cold front.
