WEATHER SUMMARY FOR MINNESOTA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TWIN CITIES/CHANHASSEN MN
410 AM CDT WED MAY 6 2015

CLOUDS AND A FEW SHOWERS MOVED ACROSS SOUTHERN MINNESOTA DURING THE
NIGHT. AREAS OF DENSE FOG DEVELOPED OVER THE FAR SOUTH AFTER
MIDNIGHT.  EARLY MORNING TEMPERATURES RANGED FROM THE MID 30S ALONG
THE NORTH SHORE TO THE MID 50S IN THE SOUTH.

A WARM FRONT OVER IOWA WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE LOW CLOUDS...SHOWERS
AND FOG OVERNIGHT.  IT IS FORECAST TO LIFT SLOWLY NORTH INTO
SOUTHERN MINNESOTA TODAY.  THIS...COMBINED WITH AN UPPER LEVEL
TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE WILL HELP GENERATE MORE WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS TO MOST OF THE STATE....ESPECIALLY THIS AFTERNOON.
WITH ABUNDANT CLOUDS EXPECTED...HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL ONLY WARM
THROUGH THE 70S CENTRAL AND SOUTH...AND SOME MID 60S IN THE
NORTHEAST.

A COLD FRONT WILL MOVE EAST OVER THE DAKOTAS LATER TONIGHT AND PUSH
INTO MINNESOTA ON THURSDAY.  THIS WILL RESULT IN MORE WIDESPREAD
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS FOR MUCH OF THE STATE AS THIS FEATURE
MOVES THROUGH.  LOWS TONIGHT ARE EXPECTED TO RANGE IN THE LOWER 50S
AND LOWER 60S.  HIGHS THURSDAY SHOULD RANGE IN THE LOWER AND MID
70S.

THE FRONT WILL EXIT THE EAST INTO FRIDAY MORNING...TAKING MOST OF THE
RAIN WITH IT.  IT WILL BE MUCH COOLER IN THE WAKE OF THE
FRONT...WITH HIGHS IN THE LOWER 50S TO MID 60S.
