Isolated showers are possible Friday afternoon, Meteorologist Matt Serwe says, ahead of scattered thunderstorms Saturday.

Serwe says isolated showers Friday should have little to no effect on most outdoor plans.

The remainder of Friday evening will be dry, ahead of the next round of rain.

Scattered rain and thunderstorms are expected to move in after midnight, continuing through Saturday morning. Serwe says there should be a brief window of dry weather early Saturday afternoon for those wanting to go outside.

After 4 p.m., more isolated storms are expected to develop, especially in central and southern Minnesota. Some of those storms to the south could have small hail and gusty winds, Serwe says.

Serwe says temperatures are also expected to climb through next week.
