What an amazing November this has been. The first 4 days of November tied for the 5th warmest and now a heavy rainstorm will threaten to keep trails closed into the weekend.
Windstorm in the making. Low pressure deepens over Minnesota Wednesday. A band of heavy rain sets up over the Twin Cities Wednesday night. This storm brings enough warm air to keep the precipitation as all rain, unlike a similar storm this time last year...
Soaking Rain. Rain totals in the Twin Cities could top 1.50" by Thursday morning. Wouldn't be surprised if this keep most of our area trails closed into the weekend. Friday will be our coldest day yet this season and will certainly limit the evaporation in the woods.
Rochester may get close to record rain, but other records likely to be safe Wednesday.
In addition to a long duration rain, the wind will howl up to 50 mph at times Wednesday-Thursday. This kind of wind can certainly down tree limb branches along our area trails.
This midweek wet storm may keep trails closed at least through Friday. Don't be surprised to see snow showers Thursday night. Coldest day of the season will be Friday but another surge of mild air bumps us back into the 50s Sunday.
Summer brings warm afternoons perfect for biking, but the summer heat and humidity can also spark thunderstorms and severe weather. Be prepared for any type of adverse weather headed your way with Aeris Pulse.
