ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – Our mild and tranquil weather spell continues today with a little less fog and much more sunshine in the area than we experienced on Monday. We’ll have a few patches of fog to start the day with some extra clouds at times as a storm system grazes the area to the north. Sunshine will dominate the midday and afternoon hours with just a hint of an easterly breeze and high temperatures will be in the mid-70s.

We'll have abundant sunshine with light winds and highs in the 70s.

We’ll have occasional sunshine and clouds Thursday with a few isolated showers and rumbles of thunder possible during the day. High temperatures will be in the upper 70s and a light southwest breeze.

Saturday looks fairly unsettled as well. Expect a little more sunshine in the area at times compared to Friday, but there will be a few scattered showers and thunderstorms in the area with high temperatures in the low 70s.

Expect mostly sunny skies Sunday with a slight chance of isolated showers in a few spots behind the departing storm system. High temperatures will be in the low 70s.
