Northland Outdoors Forecast: Showers move through the region Saturday

Highs will warm up nicely for most of us making for a decent summer weekend.

We are part of The Trust Project.

Parts of the Dakotas and southwestern Minnesota will warm into the 80s with 70s elsewhere. Watch for showers to move across Minnesota throughout the day with a few thundershowers near the Twin Cities and into Wisconsin in the afternoon and evening hours.

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.
