Northland Outdoors Forecast: Cooler with Showers and Thunder

This weekend will feature areas of showers and thunderstorms scattered across the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest.

Temperatures will take a break from the heat this weekend. Winds look to be light for most of Minnesota and Wisconsin with a little breeze here and there for the Dakotas. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible for the region both Saturday and Sunday.

Saturday likely won't be a washout for the area, but areas of showers and some embedded thundershowers will be likely.

I grew up in Minnesota and my love of the outdoors lead me on a path to becoming in meteorologist. I got my Bachelor of Science in meteorology at St. Cloud State University. I started out my career as a TV meteorologist in Bismarck at KX News in 2010. I left Bismarck for Fargo in the fall of 2015 where I've been since working for WDAY as well as The Forum.
