Rain, cooler temps arrive Friday

May 16, 2019 09:29 PM

For the first time in 241 days, the Twin Cities reached 80 degrees on Thursday. Unfortunately, the warm, sunny weather isn't sticking around.

KSTP Chief Meteorologist Dave Dahl says a cooldown is on the way, and we'll see some rain and storms several days over the next week.


On Friday, storms will enter the southern part of the state in the morning, but likely won't reach the metro until the afternoon hours, Dahl says. Highs will likely only reach the mid-60s Friday, and that could be the warmest we get over the next week.

Storms will move in again late Friday night or during the overnight hours into Saturday, and again Saturday night with heavy rain possible at times.

Dahl says between the next couple days, we could get about 2 inches of rainfall. Looking ahead to next week, not only does the cooldown stick around, it looks like more chances for rain will, too.
