The latest computer runs show over 1" of liquid this weekend for parts of central Minnesota. The image below shows the radar late Friday evening, which is likely to occur again Saturday evening and Sunday evening, but there will be an eastward shift in this precip as the weekend rolls on.
If you have outdoor plans this weekend or have tickets to see some of the best golfers in the world take on Tiger in Chaska, you may want to bring that umbrella just in case. At this point, Sunday is looking like the wetter day of the weekend with, perhaps, a delay or two at the course, stay tuned for further updates. The weather model (here) shows the precip finally pushing east of the area, just in time for the work week to begin. I'll keep my fingers, toes and eyes crossed, in hopes that every outdoor activity planned this weekend goes on without a weather hitch. Hopefully the soaking rains will come while we're all in bed, dreaming of that birdie putt at 18 to win the championship or the walk off grand slam to win the game. Maybe your plans include an outdoor wedding or a family reunion... I hope EVERYTHING stays dry, I hate being the one to blame. I am hoping for the best possible weekend for you and yours, enjoy it, regardless of the weather (even if it sours/dampens your day).
