Northland Outdoors Forecast: Warm with a few chances of T-storms

Temperatures will get rather warm for parts of the region with isolated to scattered T-storms possible Friday through Sunday.

We are part of The Trust Project.

Friday is shaping up to be a decent weather day for the region. Watch for a few showers and thunderstorms to pop up for eastern South Dakota as well as southern Minnesota.

Winds will start to pick up out of the south for western Minnesota and most of the Dakotas Saturday. This south wind will boost our temperatures into the upper 80s to lower 90s. Highs near Rapid City could approach 100°.

Sunday is shaping up to be very similar to Saturday. Highs will top off in the 80s for most with a few reaching into the 90s. I'm seeing a breeze for South Dakota and southern Minnesota, but North Dakota and northern Minnesota are looking to feature lighter winds.

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.
