October 03, 2017 11:42 AM

Scattered showers and thunderstorms were expected to linger Tuesday morning before drier air moves into the state later in the afternoon.

KSTP Chief Morning Meteorologist Ken Barlow said winds from the northwest will increase, which will help push clouds and rain away.


Meanwhile, a flash flood watch expired Tuesday morning, after heavy rain fell throughout the state Monday evening.

Looking ahead, Barlow said Wednesday is expected to be a much brighter and drier day. Afternoon temperatures are expected to stay below average for this time of year, in the low 60s.

Then, thunderstorms could return late this week into the weekend, Barlow said.
