Scattered rainfall heavy at times tonight, rising area waterways

The Tornado Watch is cancelled across Minnesota and the Forecast First Alert is over for tonight. Heavy rainfall lead to flooding across northeastern Minnesota with even close to 6″ of rainfall locally across the arrowhead of Minnesota.

The metro saw heavy rainfall as well, with gusts up to about 50 mph at times leading to a few power outages. Rainfall is possible still tonight but the cold front that brought the threat for severe weather is now tracking into central Wisconsin.

Area waterways will continue to rise tonight into tomorrow with a handful of river flood warnings in place. If you come across flooded roadways, do not drive through the water, but instead turnaround and choose a different route.
