Much better air quality for northern Minnesota and northern Wisconsin as we head through the long holiday weekend. 

Temperatures will also be on the rise as the 80s return on Saturday and are likely to peak Monday in most areas, with low 90s possible for some. All this before the chance for storms returns Monday night and Tuesday, which will cool temperatures slightly by the Fourth. 

Sunshine will prevail for the most part with some clouds arriving when the storm opportunities return. While it will certainly be quite warm (a little above average), the dew points, or the level of moisture in the atmosphere, will be fairly low for Saturday and Sunday but are likely to start creeping back into the humid and very humid category by Tuesday.
