Friday will be warmer than our Thanksgiving weather. We are tracking a weak wave to bring a few sprinkles or light snow to parts of the Red River Valley and northcentral Minnesota on Saturday. Another wave could bring light snow to northern Minnesota later on Sunday evening.

Friday is shaping up to be a quiet day. Highs will be mild for the Dakotas with a little cooler weather sticking around for northern and northeastern Minnesota and into Wisconsin.
