Winds have also died down significantly since Thursday, so there is less of a wind chill, making Friday feel much more comfortable overall.

Dry skies prevail through the day, and although it will be mostly cloudy, there will still be plenty of breaks of sunshine.

Weather conditions are going be similar on Saturday, until rain starts pushing in late ahead of a strong storm that impacts Minnesota on Sunday.

That extended forecast will be updated around 9 a.m.
