More Storms/Downpours Approaching Metro Area - Lingering Flash Flood Risk
June 1, 2014 — 11:17am
Another Round. NWS Doppler radar at 11:15 AM shows more heavy T-storms approaching the west metro, where 3-6" of rain fell in the last 24-36 hours, much of it overnight. These storms are moving very slowly, which will increase rainfall amounts and the potential for additional street, stream and basement flooding. If you live in or near an area that has already been impacted by flooding stay alert and be ready to move to safety as waters rise.

I am happy to report that weather conditions will be nearly perfect over the next few days as a bubble of high pressure slowly drifts across the Great Lakes. Sunny, dry and comfortable temperatures will be with us through Saturday... You're welcome! Check the blog for more details. -Todd Nelson
Another round of heavy rain across the southern half of the state and will continue to linger through the first half of the day today.

Sticky sunshine returns Tuesday with dewpoints spiking in the upper 60s and low 70s. This could help spark a few strong to severe storms later with rounds of heavy rain overnight. Some in southern Minnesota could see as much as 1 to 3 inches of rain through early Wednesday. Check the blog for more details. -Todd Nelson
I hope you get out to enjoy one more comfortable day across the region Monday, as 90s and high dew points make a return Tuesday. That'll also come with the potential of strong storms and heavy rain. When will the nice weather come back - and stick around? Click for more! - D.J. Kayser
A faint puff of Canadian air drops temperatures and humidity levels Sunday and Monday. Better sleeping weather. We warm up later in the week but dangerous heat, extended days or weeks above 90 or 100F, stays south of Minnesota into early August. Check the blog for more details. -Todd Nelson
