Thursday’s high will be a degree cooler than Wednesday, topping out at 46. Starting Thursday afternoon, scattered showers will move from southwestern to central Minnesota, reaching the metro by the evening. The system will exit out of northern Minnesota early Friday afternoon.

It will reach nearly 60 on Friday, but that’s still 5-10 degrees below average for this time of year. Friday will also be mainly dry, with precipitation and higher wind speeds returning late in the night and sticking around through Sunday evening. Saturday will be the wettest day of the bunch.
