Weather Summary for Minnesota
National Weather Service Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
325 AM CDT Tue May 23 2017

Clouds and scattered light rain showers rotated over much of the
state overnight as a large upper level low pressure center dropped
into northern portions of the state from Canada. Temperatures early
this morning generally ranged between 40 and 50 degrees, although a
few sites in the Arrowhead dropped into the 30s.

While a surface front remains just to the southeast of the state
today, the large upper level feature will slowly drift south today.
This will maintain the presence of scattered showers for much of the
state. Rainfall amounts will be low, with only a few hundredths to a
tenth of an inch expected for areas receiving measurable rainfall.
Highs will only reach the 50s statewide.

The upper level feature will drift off to the south and east
overnight tonight, dragging any remaining rainfall with it away from
the state. Lows tonight will fall to the 30s up north and to the 40s
for central and southern portions.

A drying out period will then commence on Wednesday and last through
Thursday as high pressure moves across the region. In addition,
temperatures will go on a warming trend as highs climb to the 60s on
Wednesday followed by highs in the upper 60s to lower 70s on
Thursday.
