Storms rolled through the Twin Cities early Friday morning.

5 EYEWITNESS NEWS Chief Meteorologist Ken Barlow said parts of the metro area saw an inch to two-and-a-half inches of rain. Additionally, a few areas received pebble-sized hail.

A few showers are possible Friday evening into Saturday morning, according to Barlow. Although there is the chance of an isolated severe storm Friday night, most of the thunderstorms around the metro will be garden-variety, Barlow added.

Temperatures are expected to warm up throughout the day on Friday and into Saturday. The record high for Oct. 1 was set in 1897 at 87 degrees, although Barlow predicts temperatures could tie that record on Saturday.
