Rain and isolated thunderstorms spread across Minnesota and into Wisconsin Thursday night into Friday morning. It won’t break the drought, but we’ll take all we can get.
After the rain passes, most of Friday should be great for outdoor activities. High temperatures will be from the 60s in the north to the mid 70s south. The Twin Cities should reach about 75, which is just about average for the date.
A broad cold front will be slow to cross the state. Isolated to scattered afternoon thunderstorms could brew in response to daytime heating. A marginal risk (level 1 of 5) has been posted for later in the day, mainly for eastern Minnesota and northwestern Wisconsin.
The weekend looks perfect for September outings. Skies will be dry. Look for high temperatures both days mainly in the 60s across the north and low to mid 70s south. The Twin Cities should hit about 70 both afternoons.
Warmer again next week
A quick warmup will push our temperatures well above normal next week with highs in the 70s and 80s. Cooler temps will be found near Lake Superior
Most of the week will be dry. But there is a chance of showers around midweek.
