Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - It looks like Mother Nature will cooperate with mothers in SE Minnesota who have outdoor plans for the Mother’s day weekend.

Only slight chances of rain are in the forecast through Sunday. High temperatures are expected to be below average, rising to 60-65.

The outlook for the coming week calls for slight chances of rain Tuesday and Friday and highs should be around 70 every day.
