WEATHER STORY:

Over the last few days, heavy rain fell in Minnesota, moderate rain fell over Wisconsin and precious little rain fell in the U.P. So, much of Minnesota faces a Flood Warning in effect as long as needed to make the waters go down. That may take until next Tuesday or Wednesday for some towns up north! Conversely, the Upper Peninsula faces a Near Critical Fire Danger until the next round of rain comes around. There’s a slight 30% chance for showers on Saturday afternoon. A better chance may start next Wednesday.

FRIDAY NIGHT AND SATURDAY MORNING:

The sky will be clear to partly cloudy. The overnight low temperatures will be within a range of 45-52 degrees. The wind will be SW 5-15 mph for all zones.

SATURDAY AFTERNOON:

A low lurking up north might spin its southern flank into our region Saturday afternoon and that could trigger a 30% chance for rain showers region-wide. The afternoon high temperatures will be 63-68 by Lake Superior. Inland, they will run 68-78. The wind will be SW 5-15 mph.
