Northland Outdoors Forecast: Chance of light snow again this weekend

Our first big snowstorm of the season will push eastward Friday, but another clipper will bring light snow Saturday.

This weekend will be a chilly one. High temperatures will stay in the 20s and 30s for a large portion of the region. A clipper is set to bring a chance of light rain and light snow on Saturday with winds briefly picking up behind this system. Chilly with lighter winds for Sunday.

A few areas of light snow will linger over the Red River Valley and Minnesota Friday midday and into the afternoon. Most of the precipitation will be coming to and end and winds look to back off throughout the day as well.
