ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – We’re tracking another round of showers and thunderstorms that are set to impact the upper Midwest Friday and again on Saturday. However, the weather on Thursday will be close to picture-perfect across the area.

High temperatures Thursday will be near the seasonal averages in the upper 50s and lower 60s. Winds will be out of the west around 10-15 mph with mostly sunny skies. Clouds will build into the area late Thursday night which will lead to our first rain chance Friday morning.

The severe threat on Friday looks to be low at this time. Some isolated storms Friday morning could produce some small hail and pockets of heavy rainfall. Temperatures will warm into the lower 70s Saturday which could lead to a rich environment for thunderstorm development and growth. It’s still a little early to get into the exact timing and threats that we could see on Saturday. Right now, it appears NE IA has a higher chance of thunderstorms than SE MN. We’ll have more details on this storm setup Thursday and Friday.
