The last two weekends have been bitter cold, but this weekend will feature temperatures reaching into the 20s or even above.

We'll kick off the weekend with highs in the teens Friday and turning even warmer throughout the rest of the weekend. A little breeze for Minnesota and the eastern Dakotas on Saturday with a blustery Sunday for the western Dakotas. A little wave of snow slides through the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest on Sunday.

We close this work week with highs mainly in the teens with more sunshine than clouds.

Moving around out on the ice will be a little more pleasant this weekend considering high temperatures will be about 20 to 40 degrees warmer than the last two weekends.

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.
