TONIGHT: A low pressure system to our south will kick off some showers and storms tonight. Chance of rain is around 60% with SE winds at 5-10mph. Lows will be in the mid 50s.

FRIDAY: A low pressure system is in Southern Minnesota and a cold front is knocking on the door of the international border. We will have a 70% chance of some rain and embedded storms bringing around 0.75" to 1.5" of rain. Highs will be in the low 70s and cooler by the lake (low 60s) with a NE wind at 5-15mph.

SATURDAY:High pressure to our north builds as the cold front and low exit eastward. But we still can't rule out a 20% chance of showers, mainly in the morning hours. Lows are in the mid 50s and highs low 70s with mostly cloudy skies.

SUNDAY:A strong low presses into Ontario and drags a cold front closer to the region. Morning lows will be in the low 50s and we will have clouds build throughout the day. Chance of showers and storms is 30% in the afternoon hours. The heavy rain doesn't get here until the late evening. Highs will be in the low to mid 70s. The chance of heavy rain and storms goes up to a 70% overnight into Monday morning.

MONDAY: Expect mostly cloudy skies and a 40% chance of showers and storms as the low slowly moves east. Lows are in the upper 50s and highs in the low 70s.
