Sunny start to extended weekend

Expect plenty of sunshine Saturday with very light winds all day.

Northern Minnesota is shaping up to have a very pleasant, although not all that warm, day ahead. Highs will mainly be in the lower to mid-70s across the area Saturday afternoon. Mornings look cool this holiday weekend if you plan on tenting or doing any camping around the region.

Sunday will feature a mix of sun and clouds and a few chances of showers and thundershowers.

Independence Day looks to be best chance at any precipitation over the long weekend. Watch for showers and some thundershowers under a mostly cloudy sky for July 4.
