TONIGHT: An incoming system will continue to keep the Northland overcast and dreary through Friday night into Saturday. A weak warm front will pass through the area during the early evening hours creating a line of showers and isolated thunderstorms. No severe weather is expected. For some areas, high school Friday night football will be rainy specifically over the Aiktin up to International Falls area. Duluth, northern Wisconsin, and UP should be dry with a few sprinkles possible. Winds will be from the southeast between 10-15 mph. Lows will only fall to the lower 50s and upper 40s. No frost is possible.

SATURDAY: The overcast skies and rain chance continue into Saturday as the same system becomes occluded over Minnesota causing the system to slow down. This will drag the chance for showers through all day Saturday into Sunday. Temperatures will not warm up much due to the cloud cover with highs only in the upper 50s. Winds will still be from the southeast between 5-10 mph. Rain chances will continue into nightfall with lows similar to the previous night in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Eventually, the system will begin to move eastward as high pressure moves in by late Sunday.

SUNDAY: As the occluded system moves to the east, Minnesota will start clearing out eventually becoming mostly sunny. There are still chances of showers for the Arrowhead region, northern Wisconsin, and UP on Sunday. Highs will slightly warm up to the lower to mid 60s. Winds will be breezy from the northwest as high pressure and the occluded system move near each other. Winds will be between 15-20 mph gusting up to 30 mph. By nightfall, most of the Northland will be cleared out with lows in the upper to mid 40s. The upcoming week looks to be sunny and cool to start off, then temperatures will warm up through the week to the mid to upper 60s by late week.
