Quiet to end week, but rain, storms possible this weekend

Temperatures to drop below average for part of the weekend behind a cold front

We are part of The Trust Project.

The area of high pressure that worked to keep our weather very quiet Thursday has now made its way off to the east. In doing so, it has opened the path for an approaching area of low pressure over the prairies to push a cold front into our region.

In the meantime, Friday will feature mostly clear skies to start with, though some additional clouds will likely begin to move into the region during the afternoon. Scattered rain shower and thunderstorm activity across western Minnesota during the evening will then try to move its way into our region Friday night.

The cold front will move into Minnesota but then stall out, allowing for another wave of low pressure to move along it. This will allow for additional rain showers, and maybe even some thunderstorms, to be possible in our region Sunday and possibly into Monday as well. Otherwise, expect temperatures to drop a bit, going from the low to mid-80s on Friday for highs to highs around 60 degrees by Sunday.
