Friday’s high temperatures are expected to drop from the low 60s into the 50s on Saturday, when rain clouds and possible thunderstorms are expected to spread throughout the region, which could linger into Sunday.

Berntson clinched her spot in the state meet with a fifth place finish in the 1,600 meter run at the Eastern Dakota Conference regional meet last weekend in Fargo.
“It was really awesome,” Berntson said. “I was just so excited and then everybody came and gave me a big hug.”
