.DISCUSSION...

Scattered rain chances persist for western Minnesota and far
southeastern North Dakota today, but expect more widespread rain to
develop tonight. Winds will blow from the north today at between
10 and 15 mph. A steady and mainly light rain will fall over most
of the area on Sunday. The cloud cover and rain will limit the
mercury to near 60 today and a few degrees cooler than that for
Sunday while keeping humidity levels well above 75 percent. By
the end of the weekend, most locations will see between half an
inch to one inch of rain with areas closer to west- central
Minnesota recording higher amounts possibly exceeding two inches.
The next "totally" dry day probably doesn`t arrive till Wednesday.
