Northland Outdoors Forecast: Quiet weekend after a chilly close to the work week

Temperatures on Friday will be quite chilly, but we do look to warm into the 70s with a lack of cloud cover both Saturday and Sunday.

A cold front late in the work week has left the region a little colder with chilly temperatures forecast Friday morning as well as Saturday morning. Friday is shaping up to be the coldest day of the next week. Highs may stay in the 50s to 60s for nearly all of the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest. Some areas of northern Wisconsin may be even chillier! Our weather will turn quite quiet though after our chilly end to this work week.

The smoke in the air is tough to forecast when it will finally move out. With that in mind, our weather will be very quiet and mild this weekend if the smoke does dissipate. Otherwise we'll be looking at sunshine through a smoky haze in the air for some of us over the weekend. I'm not seeing much in terms of cloud cover for either Saturday or Sunday. Highs for most reach into the 70s Saturday with lighter winds out of the south and southwest. Only a slight breeze is to be expected here and there for parts of the Dakotas and up into northwestern Minnesota. You can check out the wind forecast in the video above where I break down this weekend's outlook with Futurecast for both precipitation and our wind trend.

More of the same for Sunday as we had on Saturday. Winds look fairly light to finish this weekend. Expect another day lacking in the cloud cover. Temperatures are forecast to reach into the 70s for nearly all the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest. If the smoke is out of the region, Sunday will be a very pleasant and spectacular day in terms of May weather.

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.
