Those looking to get outdoors in Minneapolis may have to wait until the end of the weekend, as showers and storms will span the week.

Cloudy skies gave way to occasional rain throughout the day Thursday. The city's high reached only 61 degrees.

Friday's high temperatures reached into the 60s but rain and wind were prevalent throughout the day.

Those sick of the heat, however, will catch a break over the weekend. Saturday will drop to a high of 59 degrees with showers throughout the day. A light coat might be needed at times as a breeze blows during the afternoon.
