Much Needed Rain Falls in Twin Cities

Some much needed rain hit the Twin Cities Saturday afternoon.

KSTP.com meteorologist Sam Ryan says the last time we saw measurable rain, that was more than a tenth of an inch in the metro, was on Aug. 6.  

“Thankfully we'll break our dry-spell and pick up .25 to .50 of an inch with showers,” said Sam.  

The tropical moisture that has caused massive amounts of flooding in the east Rockies-and primarily Colorado-is finally pushing east. This will result in increasing clouds through the afternoon and the arrival of those showers.  

Sam expects a dry day Sunday, with a few spotty sprinkles over the lunch hour. Sunday night will be clear and cool, with temps falling into the mid-50s.

Monday will be off to a chilly start, then mostly sunny and comfortably cool. The high will be near 70.
