If rain/no rain often boils down to high versus low air pressure, hot/cold just as often fall on southern versus northern air masses visiting our region. A warm and humid maritime air mass from the Gulf of Mexico is with us this weekend. It just needs a trigger to create showers and thunderstorms. That trigger will be a low and its cold front today.

This morning should be fairly sunny, with clouds this afternoon. Minnesota will get an afternoon chance for storms and Wisconsin will get it in the evening. The chance for both zones is 60 percent.

Monday should have a few showers with highs in the 70s. It'll fall into the 60s Tuesday and Wednesday. Temperatures and rain chances will pick up again for Grandma's Marathon next Saturday: 50 percent rain chance with race start temperature of 58 and finish line reading of 75.
