For those of you heading to the lakes early this weekend, expect some hot temperatures across the region. Highs in the 90s will be common place along the Red River and back into Minnesota, with highs approaching the lower-100s possible in parts of South Dakota.

Friday's weather is shaping up to be quite pleasant. Winds will be light, the sky will be filled with sunshine, and temperatures will be approaching our seasonal averages. Looks like a really nice evening to arrive at the lake or just be outside on the patio. And the weekend looks nice too.

Showers and storms on Saturday

Grab the shades as you leave for the lake this weekend. The drive to your destination on Friday will be a warm one, if not a hot one! Saturday will be our next chance of any precipitation for the region. Showers and thunderstorms look likely for central and eastern North Dakota in the morning with this wave sliding into Minnesota mid to late morning. Sunday will be drier and slightly cooler.

Northland Outdoors' Chad Koel speaks with paddlers Anne Sherve-Ose of Williams, Iowa, Deb Knutson of Owatonna, Minnesota, and Deb White of Rosemount, Minnesota.

The three women met in the 1970s as students at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota, and paddled from the headwaters of the Mississippi River at Lake Itasca to the Gulf of Mexico over 13 years beginning in 2004.

They discuss their trips, meeting people along the way and what they've learned from their travels.

Mixed bag of weather for the Fourth of July weekend
Thu Jun 30 17:00:00 EDT 2022
  We kick off this holiday weekend with a breeze for most of Minnesota out of the northwest on Friday. Expect light winds and a comfortable arrival to the lakes of North Dakota Friday evening. Saturday won't be a hot day, but expect a mix of 70s and 80s across the region. I'm seeing a few interruptions in the form of showers and scattered thunderstorms throughout the midday, afternoon, and evening hours. 

Sunday is looking like the pick day of the extended weekend. Highs won't be all that hot, but still comfortable and warm for some. Winds don't look all that strong either.
