The gorgeous forecast comes following a week of cool and soggy weather. It also follows back-to-back severe storms that lashed Minnesota earlier this month, leaving wind and hail damage, as well as significant flooding.

Before the Top 10 Weather Day, Minnesotans will need to endure a cloudy Thursday with temperatures topping out in the low 60s.

As for the rest of the weekend, Saturday and Sunday will be warm and slightly humid, with highs around 80 degrees in the Twin Cities. Scattered showers are expected both days, and there's a chance for severe storms Sunday across much of the state.
