Justin Liles: Steady climbing temperatures
Relatively quiet conditions are expected tonight with cool temperatures. There is a chance of rain showers for portions of central and northeast Minnesota Thursday as temperatures begin to trend warmer. These showers will likely happen earlier in the day and early afternoon if they happen at all. Southerly winds will continue to push warmer air back into the Northland through the remainder of the week and into the weekend. The warmer than average air plans to stick around through the weekend.
Many parts of the Northland will climb into the upper 50s this Saturday. Away from the lake, temperatures are expected to climb into the 60s. Saturday will likely have a few more clouds than Sunday but it will still be warmer by a few degrees. Sunshine and warmth will carry over into Halloween day. It looks to be a great evening for our little trick or treaters.
