While still comfortable, temperatures and humidity were on the rise across the Northland Wednesday.

Fair weather cumulus clouds Wednesday afternoon will fade away just as clouds blow in from the Plains and thicken overnight.

Those clouds are associated with low pressure developing over Nebraska with showers and storms expanding across the Dakotas.

Rain will move southwest to northeast across Minnesota late tonight and enter our part of the state Thursday morning.  The wet weather will expand into Northwest Wisconsin and Western Upper Michigan by afternoon or evening.

Wet weather will stick around Thursday night into Friday and start to move out late Friday night.

There will be a few rumbles of thunder and rainfall amounts of an inch or so are expected by the time the low pressure system departs Saturday.

High temperatures Thursday and Friday will be held down to the low-to-mid-70s with the clouds, rain, and easterly winds.

Our weekend looks nice and warm with highs well into the 70s to near 80°.  However, an isolated shower or two can’t be ruled out Saturday evening.
