While a passing thundershower is likely at any given trailhead this week the majority of the time will be spent under a somewhat cloudier sky with cooler conditions compared to last week. We get a break for now, long range models hint at another streak of 90s come early August.
July Rainfall DEPARTURE from Average
July 2016 has been undoubtedly wet for Minnesota, the Midwest, and Plains. This map above shows the departure from average rainfall, which clearly shows the preferred track of storm complexes.
As it would break down this week, the rainfall won't be overly impressive. The majority of central Minnesota, including the Twin Cities, will receive a total of 0.75" by the end of the week.
Rain chances remain through Friday with a drying trend into the weekend. Looking ahead the 8-14 Day Outlook indicates a warm and wet pattern developing across the Upper Midwest through the first full week of August.
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.
