Retired University of Minnesota climatologist and meteorologist Mark Seeley joined host Cathy Wurzer to look at how the latest round of precipitation has affected regions across the state.

According to Seeley, certain areas of the state will still register in the top 10 driest years. Right now, Bemidji, Crookston and Warroad, Minn., have received less than 15 inches of precipitation which is about 40 percent below average.

Wet weather is expected across the state this weekend but Seeley said the five- to seven-day outlook doesn’t contain any major storms right now.

“We may get above normal briefly on Tuesday this coming week,” he added.
