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.



Travel weather on Friday afternoon shows north bound vehicles aided by south breezes with temperatures in the 60s.

Temperatures across the country will be quite typical for the season on Saturday. Cool weather rims the Great Lakes and New England.


Temperatures valid at 1 p.m. CDT Saturday from GFS model.


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.
