MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The raindrops that started to fall on Wednesday aren’t going anywhere anytime soon, as the showers are expected to stick around through most of Thursday.
The day will boast slightly below-average temperatures in the high 40s in the eastern part of the state, with the western portion potentially seeing low 50s.
Showers are expected to start diminishing in the afternoon before drying out in the evening and into Friday. The clearing trend is part of an overall slow-to-develop pattern.
🌧️CONTEXT: This storm brought 2-day rainfall totals of at least 1/2" across most of #MNwx, with some 1-2" amounts (shaded in yellow/orange).
By my eye, that makes it the first widespread (border-to-border) significant rain since March 24, 2021(!). Please correct me if I'm wrong! pic.twitter.com/D0GhzV3bS5

Many parts of the state still could use the moisture following the summer drought.
While the rain is expected to cease by Friday, the clouds are expected to linger when you wake up Friday morning.
Saturday looks to be the warmest day in the near future, with a lot of sun and high temps in the high 50s.
As for Sunday, which is Halloween, expect a colder day in the high 40s, but sunny conditions will stick around.
