Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00
State SatRad 6hr

FRIDAY NIGHT & SATURDAY MORNING:  The sky has become mostly cloudy to overcast as a trio of low powered low pressure systems have come within range of our region. The chance for rain Friday night and early Saturday morning is 30% at best. The wind will be E 5-10 mph. Low temps will be near 50.

SATURDAY: The less than vigorous conglomeration of upper-level waves we'll politely call low pressure systems will continue to keep the clouds up and bump up the chance of rain to 40%. Any embedded thunderstorms will remain well below severe levels. The wind will be ESE 5-15 mph. High temps will be in the upper 60s to mid 70s, but 50s lakeside.

SUNDAY: The last of the low pressure systems to migrate past the Northland will pack the most punch. The rain chance will hop up to 60% and accumulations will go up as well. Check below for a rain total estimate. The wind will be SSE 5-10 mph. High temperatures will get into the 70s, with some areas south around 80.

MEMORIAL DAY:  The day will start cloudy and rainy but that should diminish later in the afternoon. Highs will be in the 70s to near 80 south with wind S 5-10 mph. Lows temps will be mild and run from the 50s to low 60s.

RAINFALL FORECAST: Through Noon Sunday, most areas will see 0.10"-0.25", but higher amounts are possible in heavier showers or thunderstorms. From Noon Sunday through Noon Tuesday, another 0.25"-1.00" will fall, but again higher are possible in heavier showers or thunderstorms.

NEXT WEEK:  Tuesday will become partly cloudy with a high in the 70's and low 45-50. Wednesday to Friday should have quiet and mild weather. Highs will be in the 70s to near 80 Wednesday and Thursday, but will cool into the 60s and 70s Friday as a cold front passes through.
