Northland Outdoors Forecast: Hot and humid days return

Dew points will be on the rise leading to muggy and hot weather heading into mid-July.

We are part of The Trust Project.

A few showers and thunderstorms will be rolling out of Wisconsin as thunderstorms develop in eastern Montana Friday evening. These storms in Montana will push into western North Dakota during the overnight period and could interrupt some late night bon fires. Minnesota is looking warm and a little muggy overnight, but overall quiet to start this weekend.

StormTRACKER Weather

A few showers and thundershowers may linger in the central and east-central parts of the Dakotas throughout Saturday. I'm seeing a very nice day to spend on the water for Minnesota. Winds look light and temperatures will be borderline hot along with a muggy feel to the air.

StormTRACKER Weather

This weekend may be one of those that you may actually want a breeze. With the warmer temperatures and muggy feel to the air a little breeze would be welcome. These light winds will make for great boating and swimming weather. It will be fairly hot to be out fishing in the afternoons. Mornings will be best to do a little casting before temperatures climb into the 80s and 90s.

I grew up in Minnesota and my love of the outdoors lead me on a path to becoming in meteorologist. I got my Bachelor of Science in meteorology at St. Cloud State University. I started out my career as a TV meteorologist in Bismarck at KX News in 2010. I left Bismarck for Fargo in the fall of 2015 where I've been since working for WDAY as well as The Forum.
