* Good chance of showers/storms Tuesday.
* Break in the showery pattern Wednesday midday into Thursday afternoon.
* Next chance of organized showers comes late Thursday into Friday.
* Saturday rain may linger over Wisconsin, clouds and showers can't be ruled out over far eastern Minnesota.
* Sunday appears to be the sunnier, warmer, drier day of the weekend, statewide.
* Long-range guidance: highs mostly in the 80s the last full week of June. No more cold fronts in sight.
This image (courtesty NOAA's Hydrological Prediction Center) shows how much rain could accumulate through Saturday PM. In the bright red coloring through the upper Midwest, the "X" indicates where a maximum may occur and the number under the "X" shows how much may accumulate within that time period. Good news for farmer and gardeners through the upper Mississippi Valley!
This image shows how much rain may accumulate Tuesday through 6pm. The latest model runs print out nearly 0.50" to 0.75"
