A few parts of southern Minnesota are seeing fog that will lift through the morning. There is a disturbance already bringing light rain to Iowa this morning, that will push some sprinkles or drizzle into southern Minnesota as the day progresses.

Another minor disturbance could bring the northern edge of the state a few sprinkles or isolated flurries.

Little to no accumulation is expected with any precipitation Thursday. It will all be light and spotty, so there will still be plenty of chances to head outside. Skies will stay mostly cloudy across the state through the day, although northern Minnesota could see a bit more sunshine.

A storm bringing heavy rain will impact Minnesota by late Friday. That extended forecast will be updated around 9 a.m.
