Another soaker rolls in

Twin Cities NWS weather story highlights soaking rainfall.

Get ready for a wet week.

The first of two strong rainmakers is moving into Minnesota. Widespread soaking rains will fall through much of Tuesday. The first system is spinning toward Minnesota from Colorado Monday. The second system is right on its heels, slamming into the Pacific Coast near Oregon.

Rainfall amounts appear to be significant with both systems this week. The first should bring .50″ to 1″+ for much of Minnesota and Wisconsin. There may even be some higher totals with this efficient rainmkaer. This is excellent news for drought plagued northeast Minnesota and northern Wisconsin.

The second system will bring additional rainfall Thursday. It may be cold enough to mix in a few snowflakes in areas north and east of the metro.

NOAA 5-day rainfall forecast shows heavy rain potential form multiple weather systems in the central USA.

Warmer weather on the horizon:

After a cool chilly week this week, it appears we will warm dramatically next week. Look for highs approaching 70 late this weekend, and pushing 80 next week.

    “mush”: Freudian slip? :-)

    This rain – if not too much – could be good for the farmers who’ve already gotten their seed in the ground. If it is followed by some above-normal temperatures, it could see some really good germination.

    NOTE: I’m not a farmer, nor do I play one on TV.
