Weather Summary for Minnesota
National Weather Service Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
345 AM CDT Thu Jul 20 2017

The front that brought the showers and thunderstorms to mainly the
south half of the state yesterday and overnight moved into northern
Iowa. The only area still seeing some rain was the far southeast
corner before sunrise. The sky cleared over about the northern half
of the state after midnight and some areas of fog developed. Early
morning temperatures ranged from the lower 50s in the northeast to
near 70 in the southeast.

High pressure will dominate the region and should keep the state dry
for today. With plenty of sunshine, temperatures should warm through
the 80s.

The Iowa front will lift slowly northeast later tonight and will be
the focus of thunderstorm development over the west and south mainly
after midnight. Lows are expected to range in the lower 50s
northeast, to upper 60s southwest.

Showers and thunderstorms are expected across the state on Friday.
There is a slight risk for severe storms which could once again
produce large hail and damaging winds along with heavy rain.

The front will remain close to the region into the first part of the
weekend before a cold front finally ends the threat by Sunday.
Cooler and drier conditions should develop then with cooler
temperatures expected into early next week.
