Warmer conditions are on the way for the Minneapolis region heading into the weekend.

The warmup will be in full swing Saturday, when temperatures are expected to reach the upper-60s. However, there is a chance for a shower or thunderstorm during the afternoon and evening.

The significant shift in temperature and the recent accumulation of snow could cause flooding in certain areas, so those traveling for the Easter holiday should take caution.

Easter Sunday will see temperatures in the 70s with intervals of clouds and sun. The conditions will persist through the evening as clear skies are in store with lows in the 50s.

Highs in the 70s will continue through Monday with passing clouds giving way to sun later in the day. Monday evening will be clear with temperatures near 50 F.

Overnight lows for next week will sit in the 40s.
