Northland Outdoors Forecast: Warm fall temperatures before cooler weather next week

A low pressure system will develop to our west over the weekend drawing in much warmer air for most of the Upper Midwest and Northern Plains.

We are part of The Trust Project.

Our weather will be fairly mild to finish out the work week. I'm seeing a slight chance of showers moving across western and west-central North Dakota on Friday while the rest of the region stays dry.

A weak wave of showers passes into western North Dakota Friday afternoon and may move into the Red River Valley after dark. The eastern Dakotas, Minnesota, and Wisconsin stay dry to close out this work week.

Temperatures will be a touch warmer Saturday compared to Friday's forecast for most of the region. The only cooler spots will be over northern North Dakota and western North Dakota.

A few showers will be possible across North Dakota and into the northern Red River Valley on Saturday while the rest of the region stays dry. This wave of showers will move by mainly in the morning and lift northward throughout the afternoon hours.

Rain will start to move into western North and South Dakota by the afternoon and evening hours of Sunday. Rain and snow will be possible just to our west. This next low pressure system will bring rain and snow to parts of the region to kick off the work week.

Ahead of this next system, our weather will warm up nicely. Highs look to reach into the upper 60s to even some lower 80s in portions of the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest Sunday.

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.
