Your daily look at late-breaking news, upcoming events and the stories that will be talked about Friday:

1. Minneapolis Council to Discuss 4 a.m. Bar Close


The Minneapolis City Council will discuss establishing a permit that will allow bars and restaurants to serve alcohol until 4 a.m. for Super Bowl LII. The meeting is at 9:30 a.m. Friday at the Minneapolis City Hall.

2. Osceola Bridge to Reopen

The Highway 243 bridge over the St. Croix River is expected to reopen Friday. Crews had planned to reopen the bridge by Sept. 28, however, they needed more time to complete the work. The bridge closed earlier this summer due to a hole, however, the recent closure was due to scheduled maintenance.

3. Active Shooter Classes

The latest mass shooting in the United States again has Minnesotans on edge about their personal security. To bring ease to those concerns, Stock and Barrel in Chanhassen is offering a free class about what to do during an active shooter situation. The event is at 6:30 p.m. at 18832 E. Lake Dr. in Chanhassen.

4. I-35W to Close

Interstate 35W will close again Friday. The closure will occur at 10 p.m. Friday and last until 5 a.m. Monday. The closure is apart of the four-year I-35W project.

5. Showers Likely

It's time to bust out that rain jacket, because showers are expected to make their way to the Twin Cities on Friday. There is only a 20 percent chance of showers Friday morning, however, that turns into a 90 percent chance after 1 p.m. Rain fall is expected to continue into the evening. Temperatures are expected to reach a high of 60 degree.
