Goes-16 infrared satellite loop from late Saturday night/early Sunday morning, June 16-17, 2018. Colder cloud tops show up in the darkest colors — Nearly stationary thunderstorms producing extremely heavy rainfall setup just south of Duluth early Sunday morning with parts of east central Minnesota into northwest Wisconsin receiving anywhere from 3 to nearly 12 inches of rain!
14z HRRR model run — Simulated Radar forecast from Noon today to 3 AM Monday.
Unfortunately with a frontal boundary and deep tropical moisture remaining over the Northland, another round or two of showers and thunderstorms are likely into this evening. East central Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin appear to have the greatest potential for heavy rain through this evening, but some downpours can’t be ruled out farther north across northern Minnesota and the North Shore areas. Note: This pattern will finally break down by Monday morning which will end the threat for additional heavy rain in our area.
