Summer Thunderstorms. While thunderstorms dampened the singletrack Tuesday even heavier, more widespread rain arrives late Thursday into Friday. This late-week rain is associated with a sharp cold front that will bring a drastically different airmass into the Twin Cities.
Cooler by the Weekend. By the weekend a stiff northwest flow will funnel cool and very dry air into Minnesota. High temperatures in the 60s are certainly possible north of St. Cloud. Dewpoints are even expected to bottom out in the 40s making for a real fall feel to the air.
Observed Rainfall & Departure from Normal Past 7 Days
Abundant Rainfall. The Twin Cities received nearly 3 inches of rain the past 7 days. Locations just south and west of the metro saw even more. Rainfall for the month is now running between 2"-5" above normal for August.
