Northland Outdoors Forecast: A fairly quiet Thanksgiving Weekend
Mild temperatures across the region
Most of the region will experience mild temperatures on Friday despite the passage of a cold front on Thursday. Westerly to southwesterly winds will usher in very mild temperatures across portions of South Dakota with highs in the 60s around Rapid City. Meanwhile, the cooler air may still be hanging on across portions of Minnesota and Wisconsin where highs will generally be in the 30s and 40s. Regardless, mostly clear skies will be commonplace across the western half of the region, with partly to mostly cloudy skies over the eastern half.
Another cold front will move through the region on Saturday, and in doing so it will take away some of the mild temperatures, including across South Dakota. This front, however, will generally not be bringing much precipitation with it, though an increase in cloud cover will be possible in some areas. This will frontal boundary passage will also cause the winds to become northwesterly, though likely not a strong breeze.
As we head into Sunday, the cooler air from Saturday's cold front will maintain its hold across the region. Highs around portions of North Dakota and South Dakota will likely dip into the upper-20s. However, parts of South Dakota - which may see less cloud cover - may see enough sun to rebound their temperatures back into the 40s and 50s across the state.
