EASTERN AND SOUTHERN MINNESOTA...WITH SUNNY TO PARTLY CLOUDY SKIES

GENERALLY FROM THE NORTHEAST AT 3 TO 12 MPH AND TEMPERATURES
RANGED FROM THE UPPER 30S NORTH...TO THE UPPER 40S TO LOW 50S
SOUTHWEST.

THE HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING ACROSS THE STATE WILL BRING INCREASING
SUNSHINE TO EASTERN MINNESOTA AS CLOUDS DEPART THIS AFTERNOON.
FARTHER NORTH...A WEAK MID-ALTITUDE FRONT WILL PROVIDE A FOCUS FOR
SOME ADDITIONAL CLOUDS OVER NORTHWEST AND NORTHERN MINNESOTA.
THERE IS A SLIGHT CHANCE OF A FEW LIGHT RAIN OR SNOW SHOWERS NEAR
THE INTERNATIONAL BORDER OVERNIGHT. TEMPERATURES THIS AFTERNOON
WILL CLIMB INTO THE MIDDLE 50S NORTH...TO THE MIDDLE 60S
SOUTHWEST...WITH 40S NEAR LAKE SUPERIOR. LOWS TONIGHT WILL RANGE
FROM THE MIDDLE TO LOW 20S NORTHEAST...TO THE UPPER 40S SOUTHWEST.

THE FRONT WILL LINGER OVER NORTHERN MINNESOTA ON SATURDAY...AS AN
APPROACHING STORM SYSTEM MOVES FROM THE ROCKIES INTO THE NORTHERN
PLAINS. CLOUD COVER WILL INCREASE DURING THE DAY WITH RAIN SHOWERS
BECOMING MORE NUMEROUS ACROSS THE NORTH. SATURDAY NIGHT THE
PRECIPITATION CHANCES WILL EXPAND TO INCLUDE THE REMAINDER OF THE
STATE. RAIN SHOWERS...POSSIBLY MIXING WITH SNOW...WILL BE THE NORM
IN THE NORTH...AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE CENTRAL AND SOUTH.
TEMPERATURES TO START THE WEEKEND WILL TOP OUT AROUND 50 NEAR THE
INTERNATIONAL BORDER...AND THE UPPER 70S SOUTHWEST...WITH 40S

CENTRAL THIRD OF THE STATE COULD SEE AROUND AN INCH OF RAIN...WITH
LOWER AMOUNTS IN THE FAR NORTH AND SOUTH. HEAVIER AMOUNTS CAN BE
EXPECTED WHERE THUNDERSTORMS OCCUR.

MONDAY NIGHT AND TUESDAY...BUT COULD PROVIDE A BREAK IN THE CLOUDS
AND SHOWERS...AHEAD OF THE NEXT SYSTEM FOR WEDNESDAY AND
THURSDAY.
