Mixed bag for Memorial Day weekend weather

By Craig Edwards

Heading up north this weekend? Temperatures will not be all that warm and bouts of showers could dampen outdoor activities.

A good soaking has occurred in the last week. This image estimates the rainfall from May 17 through mid-afternoon today. The Duluth Airport measured more than eight-tenths of an inch of rain today.

Beginning Friday evening, your rain chances are about 30 to 40 percent for each 12-hour period through Memorial Day. Details to be sorted out on Thursday. It does not look like beach weather in Minnesota.
