Temperatures are likely to remain in the upper-70s and low-80s throughout this weekend as humidity sticks around with on and off isolated rain chances possible.

Today will start off with cloudy skies along with some showers and thunderstorms mainly north and east of Mankato. Some isolated showers and thunderstorms may pass through south central Minnesota/Mankato through the morning and early afternoon hours. The more consistent showers and thunderstorms will be along and east of I-35, stretching from MSP to the Rochester area, and even into portions of northern Iowa, south of Rochester. Rain totals will range from no rain east of Mankato, trace amounts around Mankato, and up to a half an inch from MSP to Rochester.
