Northland Outdoors Forecast: Tracking more wind and a chance of rain/snow
We stay chilly with a breeze for most of the region as a large area of low pressure pinwheels over Ontario this weekend.
Light snow showers along with some light rain showers will be possible across northern Minnesota and parts of Wisconsin to finish out this work week. Nearly all of the region besides areas closer to northeastern Minnesota and northern Wisconsin will be dealing with a brisk northwest breeze Friday.
Winds will continue to blow across the Dakotas and western and southwestern Minnesota. Gusts will reach into the 20s and some lower 30s over these area. I'm seeing lighter winds for parts of the Northland Friday.
Temperatures will get a small boost Saturday compared to how we finished the work week. Highs will stay cold in northern Minnesota, northern Wisconsin, and northeastern ND due to an area of low pressure pinwheeling colder air into the region.
Most of the region will stay dry on Saturday, but there is a chance of showers and a few snow showers mixed together again across northeastern Minnesota and parts of northern Wisconsin. Check out the video above to see a breakdown of Futurecast as we move through the weekend along with our wind trend.
Winds will continue to blow out of the northwest for the Dakotas on Saturday. Gusts could reach the lower 30s for these areas. Winds will still be breezy across western and southern Minnesota with gusts into the 20s.
We are looking cold to finish this weekend with the chilly temperatures lasting into early next week. Some places of northern Minnesota may stay in the upper 30s Sunday afternoon.
