Five years ago this week an incredibly strong storm equivalent of a category 3 hurricane lashed out over the Great Lakes region. Minnesota experienced high winds for two straight days in addition to record-setting rain. Storms like this one in 2010 are common in October. A similar (albeit weaker) storm has deepened just to our east this week.
Mid-week Rain Parts of Hurricane Patricia that left Texas and Louisiana waterlogged begin to drift into the Ohio Valley. This storm joins forces with upper level energy to produce an expansive wind and rain storm over the Great Lakes. Heaviest rain stays east into Wednesday night with the Twin Cities picking up a solid half inch.
Trick-or-Treat No random Halloween blizzards this year for Minnesota. Clear and cool for those little ghosts and goblins.
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.
