NEXRAD storm total rainfall shows widespread rainfall totals from .25″ to .50″+ covering much of Minnesota. Note the heavier totals along and south of the I-90 corridor in southern Minnesota.

Now THAT’S a million dollar rain.

Our latest weather system has brought widespread, meaningful, soaking rains to most of Minnesota and Wisconsin…including the drought plagued area of the North Shore.

Rainfall amounts have been impressive and consistent. Here at the weather lab in the west metro, the garden soaked up to .90″ of new rain. Here are some other rainfall amounts.

Deephaven .90″

Twin Cities Airport .83″

Eden Prairie .56″

St. Paul .77″

St. Cloud .61″

Alexandria .45″

Sioux Falls .25″

Hinckley .81″

Duluth .60″

Enjoy the return to sunshine Wednesday and Thursday before a juicy and troubled warm front pushes north into the area Thursday evening and hangs around into the weekend. It looks like a scattershot pattern of potentially heavy thunderstorms will set up as we head into the weekend.

Welcome to how June was meant to be in tropical Minnesota.
