Weather Summary for Minnesota
National Weather Service Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
430 AM CDT Sat Sep 23 2017

Prior to midnight, several strong thunderstorms moved across
northern Minnesota, mainly along the Canadian border. These storms
produced over two inches of rainfall near Baudette. Another area of
storms moved into west central Minnesota and produced wind damage
near Murdock and Watson. Rainfall totals in this area ranged from
one quarter to one half inch. A few training thunderstorms in
central Minnesota near East Gull Lake, produced locally one to two
inches of rainfall. A cold front had moved as far southeast as west
central to north central Minnesota overnight. Behind this front pre
dawn temperatures were in the 50s and lower 60s. Ahead of the front,
temperatures were quite mild with readings still in the 70s. It was
still near 80 degrees in the Twin Cities metro area as of 430 am.

The cold front will remain nearly stationary today, and then move
back northwest into far northwest Minnesota overnight. This front
will slowly return to western Minnesota Sunday morning, and then
move across the state Sunday night. Several rounds of showers and
thunderstorms will occur along and behind this front. Temperatures
ahead of the front will remain very warm and humid. Eventually
everyone in the state will see much cooler weather by Tuesday with a
much cooler air mass moving into the state by late in the week.
