Weather Summary for Minnesota
National Weather Service Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
450 AM CDT Tue Jul 18 2017

A slow-moving cold front extending from northwest Minnesota into the
central Dakotas will slowly drop southeast across the state today.
Showers and thunderstorms will develop over west central portions by
late morning and expand to cover much of central and southern
Minnesota through the afternoon and evening hours. Some storms may
be strong to severe with large hail and damaging winds. Heavy
rainfall is also possible, such that one to two inches of rain is
likely through tonight for much of the southern half of the state.
Highs will climb to the 80s statewide with heat index values into
the lower to middle 90s.

After a break from the rain for much of tomorrow, additional periods
of rain and thunderstorms are expected Wednesday night through
Friday. Today`s cold front will settle south of the state tomorrow
then slowly lift north as a warm front and settle across the state
Wednesday through Friday, allowing a series of low pressure centers
to ride along it which will enable multiple rounds of rain and
storms to develop. Rainfall amounts during the latter half of the
week may total an additional 1 to 3 inches for much of the state,
particularly the southern half.

Temperatures will remain warm throughout the week with highs mainly
in the upper 70s to lower 80s.
