Showers near Minneapolis in our Tuesday, back-to-work, forecast
As we wake up and head to work this morning in the Twin Cities, we find ourselves right in between two larger batches of rain. One near Hutchinson and headed toward Elk River, and one nera Owatonna and Rochester and moving northeast as well. Here’s the radar view as of 7:30 a.m. this morning:
We’re right in the middle, and it looks like we may actually miss out on the bulk of this current batch of rain. Don’t worry, though. There’s still more rain on the way.

Lots and lots of rain, at least as a possibility for today. We’ll see how it all progresses throughout the day – but here’s a look at the future radar view as we see more heavy rain try to move in midday:
As heavy rain lifts north, we’ll see more rain move back in from the south/southwest by evening. Here’s a look at the future radar as the second, and last heavy, round of rain moves in:
By Wednesday morning we’ll still be a little soggy, but gradually clearing up throughout the morning. Most of Wednesday will end up sunny, no matter how wet we start out the day.
