More Downpours - Flash Flood Watch Extended into Monday Afternoon
June 1, 2014 — 12:14pm
A Fickle Front. More heavy showers and embedded T-storms are pushing across the MSP metro area, and conditions remain ripe for locally heavy rain into tonight, more "training" storms forming along this very slow-moving frontal boundary. A Flash Flood Warning is posted for south central Minnesota, where 1-3" amounts have been observed just this morning. People living in flood-prone regions should stay alert.

Flash Flood Watch. NOAA has extended the Flood Watch for the southern half of Minnesota, including the Twin Cities, thru Monday morning. With saturated soil and more potentially heavy rain in the forecast conditions remain ripe for more flooding of streets, streams and basements.
River Flood Potential. NOAA has outlined the area where significant river flooding is possible, even likely thru the end of the week.

Mother Nature will have us guessing again this week. Bright afternoon sun returns Monday, but a chilly rain moves in late Tuesday through Wednesday. I could see a few locations across southern Minnesota with 1 to near 2 inch rainfall tallies by midweek! Check the blog for more details. -Todd Nelson
After a beautiful Saturday, a weak storm system will push through the region prompting a bit of a breeze Sunday. There will be a noticeable nip to the air. Clouds and a few showers will be found in far northern Minnesota, while most of us stay dry through Monday. A cool rain arrives late Tuesday with some 1 to nearly 2 inch rain amounts possible across southern Minnesota through midweek. Check the blog for more details. -Todd Nelson
Here we go, fall the way we knew it could be. That means low to mid 60s with some sunshine streaming through today - a few more clouds and more wind tomorrow, but all in all fairly quiet for late October. A little rain is expected the middle of next week; warming up nicely 1 week from today before cooling off for Halloween. No blizzards brewing for October 31 this year...
Yes, La Nina correlates with colder, wetter (snowier) weather for northern tier states, and that could mean a better chance of happy snowmobilers and cross country skiers this winter. Average snow would be nice, about 54", give or take. Odds favor a tougher winter than last year, but I wouldn't assume worst-case (polar vortex) scenarios just yet...
It actually feels like October out there. Soak up the chill because a mild bias continues as far ahead as we can see, certainly into the first week or two of November. Snow? I don't see it - in fact many suburbs within 20 miles of the downtowns will remain frost-free for another week or two. As has been the trend in recent years we're getting another Super-Sized Autumn
