More storms on way this week, possibly bringing more much-needed rain

Tuesday mornings storms brought some much-needed rain to most of Minnesota, and as we approach the weekend, more storms are on the way that could bring several inches of rain for parts of the state.

Wednesday will remain pleasant and comfortable, but beginning Thursday rain chances increase from west to east. Daytime will bring heaviest rain to parts of western and central Minnesota, but storms will linger overnight producing more heavy rain.

More rounds of showers and storms are forecast to produce significant rainfall totals for most of the state throughout the weekend.
