Here's your Memorial Day Weekend forecast

Rain is in the forecast, but no day is expected to be a washout.

It's Memorial Day Weekend in Minnesota, so naturally the forecast isn't looking that great.

Temperatures are expected to be closer to normal, but still below average, for much of the weekend, plus there are chances for some rain (but no day is expected to be a washout) and there's also the possibility for some isolated thunderstorms, the National Weather Service says.

Here's a look at the forecast for different parts of the state, according to the National Weather Service's website (you can check the latest forecast for where you'll be here):
