Lately when it rains, it pours! The past few rain events have produced 1+ inch amounts. More of the same this week with the Twin Cities being the bullseye of the country for big rain.
Rainfall Forecast Through Thursday
Nocturnal thunderstorms are usually the norm in Minnesota during the warm, summer months. A cluster of heavy rain-producing storms will roll through into Wednesday morning. Rainfall totals could again top 1 inch across the metro.
The possibility of flash flooding is high as the ground remains saturated and unable to absorb much more rain water. The National Weather Service Flash Flood Guidance indicates that Ramsey County would only need 1 inch of rain over a three hour period in order to see flash flooding.
Drier days are ahead, however. Trails will get a chance to firm up Thursday-Sunday as high pressure nudges the storm track northwest of the Twin Cities. After Wednesday, the next chance for a soaking comes late Sunday night.
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.
