High pressure will slide through the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest this weekend allowing for sunshine and quiet weather across the region. As this area of high pressure departs the region another low pressure system will develop over Wyoming and Colorado leading to snow and rain moving into South Dakota late Saturday into Sunday.

Expect plenty of sunshine for Dakotas, Minnesota, and Wisconsin on Friday. Temperatures will stay a little cooler where the band of snow moved through South Dakota into northern Minnesota on Wednesday.

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.
