Rain chances return to the forecast late this week with isolated to scattered showers and storms possible Saturday and Sunday. I’m keeping a close eye on Saturday for the potential of some stronger storms too. The timing isn’t too clear yet, but areas south of I-90 could see the threat of a couple of stronger storms.

Rainfall amounts over the weekend and through Monday could reach near 1.00″ for some areas across SE MN and NE IA. Long-range models do have a decent agreement on placing a nice amount of rain across the region.
