Northland Outdoors Forecast: Scattered showers bring some interruptions to the weekend

This weekend isn't shaping up to be a washout, but areas of showers area expected to continue across the Dakotas, Minnesota, and parts of the Upper Midwest.

We are part of The Trust Project.

We'll wake up to fairly cloudy sky and temperatures in the 50s and 60s. A few areas of showers and thundershowers will be in North Dakota and northern Minnesota. Check out the Futurecast outlook with the video above.

This weekend is shaping up to have generally lighter winds. We've had a breeze for parts of the area to finish out the work week, but both Saturday and Sunday will have light breezes here and there.

Temperatures will be cool for northern and northeastern parts of North Dakota and up into extreme northwestern Minnesota. A few scattered showers and an occasional rumble can't be ruled out. Saturday is not shaping up to be a washout, but any outdoor plans should have a back up.

We are looking a little drier Sunday. The Dakotas warm up into the 70s with a few lower 80s down near Sioux Falls. A few showers and thundershowers may linger over northeastern Minnesota and parts of Wisconsin. The combination of light winds, some sunshine, and highs in the 70s will make for a pleasant close to this weekend.

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.

An uncommon bird, the unmistakable woodpecker of grand proportions is a resident throughout Minnesota. From the cottonwood bottomlands of the Red River Valley to the richly forested southeastern bluff country, the pileated woodpecker can be seen flying in its deliberate rolling manner, or heard by its thunderous drumming on trees with its bill, or identified by its distinctive hysterical call resonating through the woodlands and the gaping tree-cavities they mine so effortlessly.
Law enforcement and natural resources agencies such as the DNR all have issued numerous news releases urging people to put safety first on the ice. Unfortunately, you can't legislate common sense.
When fishing early ice it is important to be quiet, especially in shallow water. Noise travels well through the ice and cold water, and fish will spook.
