Not what some folks in west-central Minnesota want to hear, but more rain is in the forecast Wednesday night into Thursday. Alexandra Keclik with the National Weather Service says, “The environment will be very moist, so thunderstorms could produce downpours on the order of one to two inches an hour. That would be fairly isolated, so it depends on exactly where those strongest thunderstorms develop.”
As for the long-term outlook, Assistant State Climatologist Pete Boulay says, “Looks like next week, still a tendency for above-normal precipitation especially over southern Minnesota — pretty much the entire state, but looks like the greater chance is as you go farther south.”
Boulay says the week after that, the state should return to more average precipitation levels.
