As the start of the work week rolls around, Monday will start in the upper 20s and low 30s before rising into the 60s again by the afternoon. However with a low currently forming over the Pacific NW, this is expected to move across the Plains moving east through the Red River Valley Monday. There will be a short window of opportunity for light rain showers, focusing along and SE of I-44. Dry air will still be circulating in the upper levels so the overall threat remains low.
