Wet weekend but sunshine not far behind

Very light, brief showers will move into the region this evening before drying out for most of Friday. Clouds will stick around but we'll near the 50-degree mark in the afternoon. Our next system will start to move in Friday night, making for a wet Saturday.

This is a pretty strong low-pressure system, bringing widespread rain for most of Saturday. We could see a few thunderstorms in the afternoon, but all the severe weather will be staying well to our south.

Rain will last into Sunday morning as the system moves out. I think higher accumulations will be largely to our west, but areas near Albert Lea and Owatonna could see up to three-quarters of an inch of rain by Sunday afternoon. The rest of us will most likely see between a quarter and a half-inch of rainfall.

After that large system, we're looking dry for all of next week! Sunshine and warm temperatures return, and temperatures could edge into the upper 50's by midweek.
