Scattered showers and storms tonight tapering off late overnight, weekend cool-down ahead

Here’s your Tuesday evening forecast for October 24, 2023 from Minnesota’s Weather Authority and Meteorologist Wren Clair.

Scattered showers and storms stay in the forecast this evening, and into the overnight hours. Rain and storms will stay east-southeast of a line from about Marshall to the Twin Cities to Hayward WI. Isolated strong to severe storms are possible tonight, with large hail and heavy rainfall being the main threats. Rain and storms taper off overnight tonight west to east, leading to a dry start to your Wednesday forecast.

Wednesday is a mostly dry day, but we do keep the slight chance for an isolated light shower tomorrow. Temperatures tomorrow are in the mid to upper-50s. Rain and storms again develop Wednesday night, with showers and storms off an on throughout Thursday into Friday morning. Rainfall during this time period will give much of the Minnesota and Wisconsin a solid shot at 1-2″ of rainfall. The highest rainfall totals from today through Friday morning, will be across southeastern Minnesota into western Wisconsin (where some flooding concerns are possible later this week).

Friday is a raw forecast with morning rain, strong winds and falling daytime temperatures back into the 30s by late afternoon. High temperatures over the weekend and into next week will be in the mid to upper-30s (yes, even for Halloween). Saturday bring the chance for our first snowflakes of the season.

Have a wonderful night!
