Monday will bring more scattered showers and thunderstorms adding to impressive multi-day totals so far. We’ll have some lingering showers still Tuesday before we dry out and warm up.

Updated rainfall totals

Rainfall keeps adding up, although the heaviest is definitely behind us with our latest system. Rainfall between Duluth and Two Harbors is in the range of 4 to 6-plus inches, causing flooding. This is on top of the similar amounts they saw just two and a half weeks ago.
