MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — I think that was a movie back in the 90s with Jeff Bridges and Tommy Lee Jones, but I bring it up because it describes what our Thursday will feel like.

A cold front will swing through early in the morning ushering in cooler air and a wicked wind from the northwest. It will blow in the 15-25 mph range throughout the day gusting near 40 mph at times.

Many counties are under a wind advisory until 7 p.m. when the wind will start to subside a bit. There will be some scattered showers following the front with most of the rain falling east over Wisconsin.

I won’t rule out some showers over the Twin Cities, but western Minnesota will stay dry.

Rain is expected over the BWCA, which will help battle the blazes up there.

Expect a leftover breeze Friday with dominant sunshine and cooler highs in the low 60s.

Things warm up nicely as we head through the weekend warming into the 70s by Sunday. The weather looks great for the Twin Cities Marathon.
