Even though a few light showers and batches of sprinkles are moving in our direction today, it’s a fairly quiet and pleasant start to the holiday weekend we’re enjoying right now as filtered sunshine, light winds, and comfortable temperatures appear to the rule across the area. Look for highs in the mid 70s in most spots and just a trace amount of rainfall from these light showers, especially for the late afternoon and evening hours. As a warm front from the south pushes into the local area tonight and tomorrow, we’ll find ourselves dealing with off and on scattered showers and a few thunderstorms, but nothing too intense and not a total washout of the first part of the holiday weekend by any stretch of the imagination. Behind that warm front Sunday we’ll have bright sunshine, gusty south winds, and more humidity in the air as high temperatures will be in the lower 90s in the afternoon and heat indices will be in the mid 90s. A cold front will bring us perhaps the most intense and heaviest round of thunderstorms late Sunday night and early Monday and then behind that, we’ll have just a few isolated afternoon showers and thunderstorms along with some sunshine and highs in the upper 70s.
If you’re heading up north, it’ll be a different story, especially as far as the temperatures go for the holiday weekend as highs will mainly be in the 50s and 60s. Here’s a look at the northern Minnesota “cabin forecast” for those traveling up there this weekend:
