Incredible rainfall totals are being documented along the Minnesota-Iowa border after a stormy night Thursday into Friday, with upwards of 7 inches falling in some locations just south of Interstate 90.
The bullseye for the torrential rain was essentially along the border from just south of Jackson, Minnesota, to just south of Rochester (20-30 miles south). Here's a look at the approximately 125-mile-long stripe where the 5+ inch totals occurred.
A whopping 8 inches fell in a rural area about 10 miles south of Austin, resulting in flash flood warnings that have since been allowed to expire. You can find more town-specific rainfall reports right here for southeastern Minnesota.
Most of the immediate Twin Cities metro has had 2-3 inches of rain, though totals decrease in the southern suburbs and across the Minnesota River Valley. But remember, storms earlier this week hammered the areas that didn't get hit as hard on Thursday, so there has been pretty good balance across the southern third of Minnesota.
This is how much rain fell Aug. 24-25.
We're not done with the rain yet
The weather service is forecasting an additional 1-3 inches of rain between 7 a.m. Friday and 7 a.m. Sunday.
Once the Friday morning storms weaken and depart, there could be redevelopment Friday afternoon. Some of those storms could produce strong winds and hail. Then we get a lull in the action overnight into Saturday before another round of storms arrives.
Saturday storms could be severe, capable of producing large hail, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes, according to the Storm Prediction Center.
