Northland Outdoors Forecast: Showers in the region this weekend
Some of us will end up having a very mild and pleasant fall weekend while other parts of the Northern Plains will deal with cooler afternoons and periods of showers.
Showers move into the western Dakotas keeping temperatures much cooler there compared to the rest of the region. Temperatures could even reach into the 80s for parts of southern and southeastern South Dakota. I'm seeing a fairly pleasant day for Minnesota and Wisconsin. A few showers may sneak into the Red River Valley throughout the day.
Winds will be on the lighter side and generally out of the east for Minnesota and Wisconsin Saturday. A breeze out of the east and northeast will keep pats of North Dakota much cooler with the combination of rain showers moving in to start of this weekend.
Showers are likely for the western side of North Dakota with some showers spreading eastward into central and eastern North Dakota throughout the day Saturday. I'm not seeing a wash out by any means for the Red River Valley, but a chance of showers will linger throughout Saturday.
Sunday is shaping up to be a mild day with some of us reaching into the 70s. I'm seeing a mix of sun and clouds to close out the weekend with most of the area staying dry.
Temperatures will get that nice boost into some lower 70s with the aid of a southeasterly wind. Sustained winds may reach into the mid-teens Sunday. Best shot for the breezy conditions will be the eastern Dakotas and the western side of Minnesota.
Most of us will have a dry Sunday, but there will be a few lingering showers or sprinkles for parts of North Dakota. You can download the StormTRACKER app for free to keep an eye on the radar this weekend and check hour by hour temperatures and winds for all your outdoor activities.
