Our wet Wednesday panned out for southern Minnesota. We’ll see a couple of drier days before our next weather system rolls in Saturday.
Saturday’s rainmaker looks significant. A powerful low-pressure storm cuts through Iowa. It appears we’ll see waves of rain, with some embedded bands of locally heavy rain Saturday.
An inch or 2
Much of southern Minnesota could see an inch or more of rain Saturday. NOAA’s GFS paints widespread heavy rainfall totals Saturday.
That volume and coverage of rain will boost river levels. The Minnesota River is already at flood stage in some areas.
60 by Monday?
Milder air follows our weekend storm. Highs should push 60 degrees on the Twin Cities and southern Minnesota Monday.
