Next Round Of Rain Returns Late Tonight

Even though it was cloudy, dreary, and a little misty in places today, overall it was dry, something many of us needed! Some of us living near the I-35 corridor even saw a little much needed sunshine & temps near 80°! Look for a quiet evening, with dinner-time temps hanging out in the low/mid 70s. Then comes our next round of rain late tonight...

A cold front out west will fire up storms over SW MN, gradually advancing eastward. The line of storms will arrive around the I-35 corridor between 9-11 PM, moving into the eastern areas after the midnight hour. Severe weather isn't anticipated, however a few storms near I-35 could be strong with some hail, gusty winds, frequent lightning, and heavy rain possible.

Heavy rain will once again be the main threat overnight, with many places picking up a quick three-quarters to a full inch of rain, if not slightly more here and there. This may slow the decline of some of our area rivers, but if we receive much more than an inch, it could create some additional rises. We'll monitor the forecast trend closely. 

We just have to get past this bout of un-needed rainfall, then comes some much needed dry weather & sunshine! This trend looks to stick around all of next week, with highs staying into the 60s for the most part.

Remember, NEVER try to drive through a flooded roadway, ESPECIALLY at night! Stay safe everyone!
