Risk of rain on weekends?

A low will pass to our south on Saturday. This system could cause scattered showers and an isolated thunderstorm over parts of southwestern and south-central Minnesota on Saturday. Sunday promises to be dry in Minnesota and western Wisconsin.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NAM) North American Mesoscale Forecast Model (NAM) shows the potential rainfall pattern from Saturday morning to Sunday afternoon:
