We experienced our second warmest day of the year Thursday with a high of 53. Only Saturday’s high of 56 was warmer.
Now we cool for a few days as we will be pinned under a good deal of cloud cover. Our dry streak will come to an end as well as a storm system brings rain and snow to the region.
The southern half of the state should get some typical April rain showers. Folks living up north may want to grab a shovel. A wet snow will blanket towns from Bemidji to Lutsen.
Much of it will melt on contact, but it still crushes the spirit of those craving all things spring. We will hang in the upper-40s for highs through the weekend around the metro.
Expect chances of rain Saturday through Wednesday, which could add to any flooding concerns.
