Sunshine and lower humidity Friday

Another round of storms moves into Minnesota late Friday

Friday brings sunny skies, warm weather and lower humidity.  However, more showers and storms start to move into western Minnesota by Friday night.

Friday’s forecast

Minnesota is starting off in the 50s and 60s Friday morning, which is slightly above average for most of the state, but not as warm as many mornings so far in July. Under mostly sunny skies, there will be a few highs in the 70s in northern Minnesota and 80s for the rest of the state.

Behind the system that caused storms the past two days, lower humidity has moved in, and almost all but southern Minnesota will see comfortable dew points in the 50s Friday.

The break from wet weather is brief. Already by Friday evening, a new storm system brings storms into the western edge of the state.

That system moves showers and storms across Minnesota on Saturday.  That extended forecast will be updated around 9 a.m.
