Northland Outdoors Forecast: Light winds this weekend

The weekend will feature a chance of showers and thunderstorms in the Dakotas Friday and Saturday.

We are part of The Trust Project.

Most of the area will see a gradual increase in high temperatures as we move forward in the weekend. Most of us will stay dry besides a chance of showers and storms in the Dakotas on Friday and Saturday.

Highs will warm into the 70s and 80s across the area to close out this work week. Winds will be light on Friday. Watch for scattered showers and T-storms for North and South Dakota.

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.
