The next 24-36 hours should be about as good as they get with temps in the 70s and low 80s throughout Minnesota and very comfortable levels of humidity. 

But the perfect weather won't last as another storm system drifts towards Minnesota in what will likely be a complete washout on Thursday. 

How much rain will fall? At this point, the National Weather Service is predicting widespread 1-2 inch amounts for most of southern Minnesota, with pockets of even higher totals possible.

We're still too far out to consider simulated future radar very accurate, but it's certainly a decent projection of the rainfall expected to roll through the state.

This radar shows what is possible from midnight to 1 p.m. Thursday. 


Widespread severe weather is not expected, but there could be isolated reports of marginally severe wind gusts and hail in some of the strongest storms, according to the Storm Prediction Center
