While Friday was sunny and mild, the rest of Memorial Day weekend will be a little more gloomier with cloud cover and occasional showers and thunderstorms, KARE 11 reports.

The station is predicting scattered showers Saturday morning, and clouds in the afternoon will keep the temperatures in the 60s in the Twin Cities and 50s in central and northern Minnesota. Sunshine is predicted for the northeastern part of the state, but the temperatures are expected to be cool.

On Sunday, the station is predicting cloud cover with hit-and-miss showers and thunderstorms, and Monday, they're calling for peeks of sunshine with temperatures around 70 with a chance of occasional showers and thunderstorms.

Fox 9's and KSTP's predictions for the metro are virtually the same as KARE. WCCO-TV's forecast for the weekend is virtually the same as its counterparts, although the station it calling for a high of 73 on Memorial Day.

The Star Tribune and Pioneer Press also forecasting a gray and somewhat wet holiday weekend.
