Whether or not we'll see rain with the front coming through Wednesday night and Thursday is still in question, but one thing we are confident in is the front will FINALLY break our current heat wave. Yes those are shades of blue on the 6-10 temperature outlook! #mnwx  #wiwx

How dry has it been so far this June? Most areas are running 1.5" to 2.5" below normal for precipitation, leading to drought concerns. #mnwx  #wiwx

Our run of above-normal temperatures comes to an end just in time for the weekend. After our best chance of precipitation this week, (Wed night-Thu night), near normal temperatures are expected for Friday through the weekend. #mnwx  #wiwx

@thedreamjunkie  There will be 0 chance of a soaking rain. This is once again thunderstorm driven, so either we will see a storm and 1/4-1/2 inch of rain, or nothing at all. Nothing at all is appearing far more likely at this time.

@tuswecawin  @Bk1skiT  @johnwetterh  @NWSSiouxFallse  tornado that hit Rochester on August 21, 1883 was estimated to be an F5 by researcher Thomas Grazulis. However, official NWS F-scale ratings only go back to 1950.

Scattered thunderstorms remain possible this evening. A few storms could produce damaging winds and large hail. Tomorrow's severe weather threat continues to be contingent on how tonight's develops and evolves. Otherwise, the next chance of precipitation is on Sunday. #mnwx  #wiwx

Something nearly as rare as this record-breaking heat; an all-female forecast team this evening! This hasn't happened at NWS Twin Cities since before YouTube was around! #NWSWomen  #WomenInScience  #WomenofNOAA

The Domebuster. Ten years ago today, over 17" of snow fell over Minneapolis, heavy enough to rip the dome of the Metrodome, causing its collapse. #mnwx 

We just rose above freezing for the first time since Feb 4th! It is more than 50 degrees warmer than it was about a week ago.

We are forecast to be pretty warm by week's end. This contrasts with the usual temperature of our soul.

This Sunday is forecast to be the first Valentine's Day since 1923 with a sub-zero high temperature. One of the models we use is trying to send us some love. #mnwx  #wiwx

The Headlines Map has been updated with more Blizzard & Winter Storm Warnings. Snow totals have also increased significantly over the last 12 hours. #mnwx  #wiwx 

On this date in 2010, a historic tornado outbreak occurred, with 74 tornadoes across the Northern Plains. Of those tornadoes, 48 were in MN. 3 people were killed & 45 injured in MN. We will be re-enacting the events of this day as they unfolded. Stay tuned… #mnwx

We've been trying to tell the fog to move away but, it can't understand us. It's too dense. ? We'll be here all night...
