Northland Outdoors Forecast: Showers to kick off this fall weekend
Showers will move across the region Friday with showers lingering for parts of Minnesota and Wisconsin on Saturday.
Showers will move across eastern parts of the Dakotas and into Minnesota on Friday. While precipitation doesn't appear to stay heavy or even moderate, I'm still seeing periods of showers to last throughout the day.
Temperatures will stay steady and cool for most of the area. We may wake up in the upper 40s and only hit the mid-50s during the afternoon. Friday will likely be rather breezy as this wave of showers pushes through as well.
Wrap around moisture will provide another chance of a few showers Saturday. I'm seeing a chance of showers mainly across northern and north-central Minnesota and into Wisconsin. The Dakotas look dry Saturday with a little wind picking up out of the northwest.
Saturday will be just a touch warmer than Friday. Clouds will start to decrease across both North and South Dakota. Highs will mainly top off near or just above 60s for the majority of Minnesota. Southern and southeastern South Dakota will have some of the warmest air around the region with a shot at some upper 70s.
High pressure will build back into the Northern Plains on Sunday. This will lead to more sunshine than clouds and stable air to be situated over the region. A few showers may linger in the extreme northeastern part of Minnesota and eastern Wisconsin Sunday.
As high pressure builds into the region behind the early weekend precipitation, winds will increase out of the northwest for Sunday. It doesn't appear to be very windy, but a breeze is expected. Winds will be out of the northwest for most of us with sustained winds in the lower teens and gusts to near 20 mph.
Sunday is looking like the nicest day of the weekend besides the breeze. Highs will hit the mid and upper 60s for most with some 70s in the Dakotas and southern Minnesota. Expect plenty of sunshine.
