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.

We are part of The Trust Project.

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.

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.
