Parts of northeast Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin picked up between one tenth to one quarter inch of rain this morning thanks to an upper level low which is impacting the area today. The western edge of the higher rain totals with today’s system did end up slightly farther west than what was forecast, and as a result the Twin Ports ended up getting a little more rain than what was forecast on Thursday.
