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

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.
