ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – We enjoyed a rather quiet and pleasant Saturday across the region today with peeks of sunshine throughout the day. Later tonight, a few isolated showers and storms are possible after 11 pm, exiting before 2 am Sunday. While a majority of the rain and storms should stay to the north and south of our area, however, any storms that do develop locally will be riding along a passing cold front.
