Chances for more much-needed rainfall this week

Though we finally saw some storms this weekend, they didn't bring much in the way of accumulation for most of us in southeast Minnesota and northeast Iowa. Mason City topped out at just over a half inch while Winona hardly saw a drop.

Our monthly rainfall in Rochester is at just over a tenth of an inch, putting us 1.24" below average so far this month. We have a lot of rain to make up for in the next few weeks, and thankfully it looks like we could put a dent in that deficit in the next few days.

Tuesday is looking completely dry with lots of sunshine, comfortable dew points and temps in the low 80s - a great day! Wednesday is looking very similar, with the slightest chance for a stray showers to make its way through as cloud cover increases during the afternoon.

Right now our best chances for widespread rain are Thursday and Friday, with slight chances for the weekend. Dew points will be on the rise towards the end of the week, which could help fuel a few thunderstorms.
