Storms will move through Minneapolis this weekend and will result in roller coaster temperatures, after several days of warmth.

A stark contrast will be felt Saturday afternoon as the high temperature drops nearly 20 degrees to the mid-60s, which is about average for late September. The low will be near 50 degrees.

This drastic temperature change will occur following a cold front that will bring rain through the first half of the weekend.
