Sunday's thunderstorms brought heavy rains and strong winds across the Twin Cities metro, hitting the Minnesota State Fair and postponing the Amateur Talent Contest in the Grandstand and the fireworks show.

KSTP Meteorologist Sam Ryan says the leftover showers and thunderstorms from that system will continue to slide east throughout Labor Day, and we can expect decreasing clouds and more sunshine throughout the day.

Highs will be in the mid- to upper-70s, and humidity will drop with dew points in the 50s, Sam said.

Tuesday, which is when many Minnesota kids go back to school, will be the "bright spot" of the week. Highs will be in the 80s with plenty of sunshine.

The next chance for strong storms will be Wednesday night into Thursday, Sam said. He added that another cold front will move through Thursday night and should bring beautiful fall weather -- just in time for football season.
