WEATHER SUMMARY FOR MINNESOTA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TWIN CITIES/CHANHASSEN MN
515 AM CDT THU SEP 22 2016
Much of central and southern Minnesota received heavy rain
overnight, causing many flooding problems from the Twin Cities metro
southward to near the Iowa border.
Less rainfall is expected today as the surface front responsible for
the rain sags south into Iowa and Illinois. Scattered showers and a
few thunderstorms can still be expected for mainly southern
Minnesota through tonight.
Rainfall coverage will remain sparse through Friday as the front
remains to the south. However, the front will lift north as a warm
front Friday night into Saturday, to be followed by a sweeping cold
front Saturday night into Sunday morning. This will bring another
round of moderate to heavy, potentially flooding, rain and some
thunderstorms statewide late day Saturday through Sunday morning.
More tranquil weather is expected for the early portion of next week
but additional showers and thunderstorms cannot be ruled out.
