Can't complain. Overall, our summer weather has been nothing short of stellar. As of July 15, the Summer Glory Index put this season as the third nicest on record!
Sure, we've had our bouts of rainy weather, like last weekend. And, unfortunately, more rain moves in this weekend. You knew the other shoe had to drop at some point, right?
It's like the calendar skipped over September and went directly to October. A deepening low with a surface pressure below 1000mb will push a line of thunderstorms through the metro Saturday night. An atypical storm for mid-August. We typically see lows like this in early October.
Twin Cities Rain: Heaviest rain stays north of the metro. But a half inch of a soaking rain early Sunday morning will leave trails damp.
Drier days are ahead with lower humidity which should help to firm up the trails early next week.
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.
