WEATHER SUMMARY FOR MINNESOTA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TWIN CITIES/CHANHASSEN MN
435 AM CDT THU APR 16 2015

A WEAK DISTURBANCE MOVED ACROSS MINNESOTA EARLY THIS MORNING A
PROVIDE A NICE APRIL SHOWER IN SOME SPOTS. A HEAVIER SHOWER MOVED
ACROSS THE NORTHERN METRO AREA OF THE TWIN CITIES BETWEEN 4 AND 430
AM AND DROPPED A FEW HUNDREDTHS OF AN INCH. HOWEVER...THE BULK OF
THE SHOWER ACTIVITY WAS NOT MEASURING...WITH THE EXCEPTION IN
NORTHWEST MINNESOTA WHERE DEEPER MOISTURE RESIDED.

THESE SHOWERS ACTUALLY HELPED OUT INCREASING THE MOISTURE NEAR THE
SURFACE OVERNIGHT WITH HUMIDITY LEVELS REBOUNDING FROM YESTERDAYS
VERY LOW READINGS IN THE TEENS AND 20S. ALTHOUGH THE RAINFALL
AMOUNTS WERE VERY LITTLE TO HELP OUT ANY FUTURE FIRE WEATHER
CONCERNS OR DROUGHT CONDITIONS. AS THIS DISTURBANCES MOVES OFF TO
THE NORTHEAST THIS MORNING...THE SHOWERS WILL END.

THE COOL SPOT THIS MORNING WAS NEAR HIBBING WITH A FEW READINGS NEAR
FREEZING OR BELOW. ELSEWHERE...TEMPERATURES WERE IN THE 40S IN THE
ARROWHEAD...WITH UPPER 40S TO MID 50S ELSEWHERE.

FOR THOSE WHO NEED MORE RAINFALL...IT SEEMS THAT LATER THIS WEEKEND
THE CHANCES OF SUBSTANTIAL PRECIPITATION TOTALS MAY DEVELOP. CURRENT
INFORMATION INDICATES THAT BETWEEN A HALF INCH...TO LOCALLY OVER AN
INCH OF RAINFALL IS POSSIBLE BY SUNDAY NIGHT. NEXT WEEK LOOKS MUCH
COLDER WITH A CHANCE OF SNOW AGAIN AS TEMPERATURES FALL WELL BELOW
NORMAL FOR LATE APRIL.
