WEATHER SUMMARY FOR MINNESOTA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TWIN CITIES/CHANHASSEN MN
450 AM CDT TUE APR 25 2017

A low pressure center just west of the Twin Cities early this
morning will shift off to the northeast to around Duluth by
daybreak, dragging early morning rain showers with it. A trailing
cold front will slowly cross the state today through tonight, with a
stronger area of low pressure in the Central Plains traversing this
front northeast into Wisconsin by tomorrow morning. Steadier and
more widespread rain will develop from south to north over much of
the state this afternoon through tonight and persist through much of
tomorrow. Rainfall amounts may exceed one inch for much of central
and southern Minnesota through tomorrow.

As this system progresses east, the remaining warm air over southern
and eastern portions of the state will be forced off to the east as
cold air drops in from Canada behind the cold front. The strong
temperature differences from northwest to southeast will persist
through tonight, as highs today range from mid 30s to mid 60s
followed by lows from the mid 20s to near 50 tonight.

As the precipitation winds down Wednesday into Wednesday night, the
precipitation will likely change over to snow for much of the state,
with some light accumulations likely for northern parts of the
state. The colder air will then remain in place through the end of
the week.
