NOF Main pic.PNG

Showers and thunderstorms stroll through the Red River Valley Friday evening and Friday night with this line of thunderstorms then moving over Minnesota. The heat could be intense for southern South Dakota through southern Minnesota and into Wisconsin on Saturday. Highs in the 90s with dewpoints in the 70s could make it feel like upper 90s to even over 100°! If you don't like the heat then Sunday may be your day.

Heading to the lake on Friday evening? It is looking warm. Most of the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest will still be in the 80s during the evening hours.

Saturday will be comfortable across North Dakota and northern Minnesota, but quite hot to the south of this area. The Twin Cities could feel over 100° Saturday afternoon! Highs will reach into the 90s in southern Minnesota with dewpoints forecast to reach into the 70s. This will make for a very muggy and hot Saturday.

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.
