Winds will start to pick up on Saturday with breezy conditions expected across the Dakotas and parts of Minnesota.

Saturday will be dry with warm September temps over North and South Dakota. Minnesota and Wisconsin will mainly top off in the 60s to near 70.

An approaching low pressure system will lead to more wind on Sunday. This south breeze could get gusty by the afternoon hours.

The winds will also help draw in a little warmer air to the region for Sunday. Highs will make it into the 70s and 80s for parts of Minnesota and the Dakotas. Northern and northeastern Minnesota and into Wisconsin will not get quite as warm, but a little warmer highs should be on tap compared to Saturday.
