Rainy Weekend?

There will be some light rain in the region yesterday and there will also probably be some precipitation today as well, but most locations in North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota will more than likely not record too much rain as these weak disturbances pass through.  Of higher concern at the moment is a storm system that is expected to move into the northern plains Friday afternoon through Saturday with perhaps some lingering lighter impacts on Sunday. This storm system will have the potential to drop 1 inch of rain or more in some locations, but certainly not for all.  Current indications are that like the last system, the heaviest rain may be in western North Dakota and in central and southern Minnesota, as they say, time will tell.
