Northland Outdoors Forecast: Mild January temperatures continue this weekend

High temperatures by the end of the weekend could be above freezing for most of the region.

This weekend is shaping up to be another mild one for the region with dry conditions and seasonal or even above average temperatures. We'll finish this work week on cool, but not cold note. Highs will range from teens to 20s for most with some warmer air situated in the western side of both North and South Dakota.

Friday's forecast for the region.
StormTRACKER Weather

A breeze is expected to pick up around the I-29 corridor and into Minnesota Saturday. I'm not seeing it as a super windy day, but if you plan on being out on the lake ice fishing then you may want to stake down some of those pop up shelters. I'm seeing a southeast wind across these areas gusting into the upper teens and mid-20s.

Saturday is looking seasonal and quiet. Besides the breeze, I'm seeing us warm into 20s to some lower 30s. It will still be warmer again in western South Dakota. We stay dry under a partly to mostly cloudy sky Saturday.

The breeze will still be around near Duluth and into Wisconsin on Sunday. It still won't be windy, but just a bit breezy. Winds for others will generally be on the lighter side. We could get a little gusty again near Devils Lake with some gusts potentially up to 20 mph midday and into the afternoon hours of Sunday as well.

Highs will hit the 30s for most of the region at the end of the weekend, but may stay in the 20s for eastern North Dakota. We still look dry to close out this weekend with a few areas or rain and snow heading into next week's work week.

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.
