ROCHESTER, Minn.

We’ll have mostly cloudy skies for most of the day with light rain showers in the area, especially in the late morning to early afternoon and during the evening hours. High temperatures will only be in the mid-50s with a gusty south breeze that will occasionally reach 25 miles per hour.
