Mixed bag of weather for the Fourth of July weekend
Thu Jun 30 17:00:00 EDT 2022
  We kick off this holiday weekend with a breeze for most of Minnesota out of the northwest on Friday. Expect light winds and a comfortable arrival to the lakes of North Dakota Friday evening. Saturday won't be a hot day, but expect a mix of 70s and 80s across the region. I'm seeing a few interruptions in the form of showers and scattered thunderstorms throughout the midday, afternoon, and evening hours. 

Sunday is looking like the pick day of the extended weekend. Highs won't be all that hot, but still comfortable and warm for some. Winds don't look all that strong either.
