MPR's Cathy Wurzer spoke with University of Minnesota climatologist Mark Seeley about rain that came at a good time for much of Minnesota.

He said he heard from some farmers in the Red River Valley who say that moisture earlier this week rescued their farms after unusually dry conditions.

He also answered the question: How often does it rain on Memorial Day in the Twin Cities?
