Friday: The early morning round of thunderstorms fall apart as they slide east with mostly cloudy skies lingering. Our Friday is shaping up to be a warm, humid, and breezy day overall. The more widespread chance for severe thunderstorms approaches Cass County to Koochiching County by the afternoon and moves east across the Northland through the evening as a cold front sweeps the region. The threat will be damaging winds, large hail, and heavy rain that could lead to localized flash flooding. The conditions may support the development of an isolated tornado, particularly near the Brainerd Lakes area.

Saturday: The cold front will pave the way for a quiet and comfortable weekend. A weaker piece of energy may stir up showers and thunderstorms late Saturday night into early Sunday morning, but the daytime hours should be dry for outdoor plans. Highs will reach the upper 70s with partly cloudy skies.

Sunday: Slight chance for an early morning shower. Mostly sunny skies with a high near 76.
