Scattered showers, storms on the way through the weekend


ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Our stretch of quiet, sun-filled weather is over, thanks to the arrival of a large, potent storm system from the west that is spreading clouds and showers across the Upper Midwest.

The first piece of energy with that system is producing clouds and scattered thundershowers in our area today and will continue to bring those chances through tonight. Some isolated strong storms and locally heavy rainfall will be possible this evening and tonight as that disturbance passes through.

A larger disturbance will arrive tomorrow, bringing more showers and storms, some of which may become severe late in the day and for Friday evening as large hail, damaging winds, and even tornadoes could all be possible.

Saturday will be blustery and damp with falling temperatures in the afternoon as a cold front swings through the region. We'll have a cool, gray cloud cover and lighter showers lingering through much of Sunday behind the massive system before slightly warmer, sunnier weather returns in the upcoming week.
