Radars and satellite showing showers & a few T-Storms increasing in western & north central MN as expected today. Showers will generally move northeast at around 30 mph or so.

It looks like the metro may stay dry until at least 7pm or so, with shower chances increasing as we head toward sunset and after dark.

SPC risk areas today have maintained slight risk for severe weather mostly south & west of Minnesota. That’s where the best “dynamics” are for any severe storms to form.

So far this looks like a general “garden variety” summer rain with most rainfall amounts generally under .25″ tonight. The bigger chance of significant rain comes Wednesday.
