Here comes more rain, and a whole lotta' wind in southern Minnesota

Winds become gusty out of the east on Tuesday afternoon.

We got knocked down with a cold, wet weekend. We got back up and enjoyed a pleasant Monday. And now we're going to get knocked down, but we'll get up again because the weather is never gonna' keep us down. 

Minnesota has been tub-thumped Chumbawamba style by a rollercoaster of cool, rainy days in May, and Tuesday will be the latest. 

Today's Weather MN blog is sponsored by our good friends at Pet Evolution. Find them in Woodbury and Arden Hills. 

According to the National Weather Service, rain will work its way into southern Minnesota Tuesday afternoon and then eventually reach the Twin Cities around 7 p.m., with rain lasting through the overnight into Wednesday morning.  


In addition to the rain, winds will be howling with gusts in excess of 40 mph. A wind advisory has been issued for pretty much the entire southern half of Minnesota, in effect from 2 p.m. until 1 a.m. Wednesday. East winds sustained 25-35 mph will gust 40-55 mph. 


Looking ahead, the unseasonably cool temperatures are showing no signs of fading. The 8- to- 14-day temperature outlook from the Climate Prediction Center shows probabilities continuing to favor below normal temps for all of Minnesota through the first few days of June.
