Here's a sobering fact: 85% of our total summer (June, July & August) moisture has all fallen this month. Hope you were able to capitalize on the rare trail openings late his week because the threat for more heavy rain will shatter all chances of extended trail openings.
Slow-Moving Storms: As the leading edge of warm, mosit air lifts into Minnesota from the Gulf, instability begins to increase. Numerous thunderstorms are expected this weekend with rainfall rates nearing 1-2 inches per hour.
Here's the kicker: Unlike the last heavy rain event, this weekend's rain won't target one particular area. The heavy rain will be more spread out which may help easy the risk of excessive flooding.
Severe Storm Threat: A break in the storms with a little sun on Sunday could help really destabilize the atmosphere. Supercell storms capable of producing large hail and tornadoes could be a threat. Your Sunday bike stroll may have to be put on hold.
