Risk of Bridal Showers
"Will we see showers?" Um, rain showers, bathroom showers, bridal showers? Please be specific. My amazing daughter-in-law is having her bridal shower today. Thank you for having it indoors, Tracy.
June is prime time for grad parties and weddings - cruel irony, since June is, on average, the wettest month of the year, with the best chance of hail, high water and cloud to ground lightning.
As a rough rule of thumb an easterly wind often implies rain or snow. A northwest breeze traditionally accompanies a rising barometer, with slow clearing and a diminishing threat of rain.
That will be the case today; a wet start gives way to lukewarm sun and highs near 80F. An instability T-shower may sprout later today, especially north and west of St. Cloud, but most of the time should be dry and suitable for outdoor fun, including St. Paul's Grand 'ol Day Parade.
A fleeting flash of summer heat is brewing; highs near 90F Tuesday before cooling down. Another swarm of thunderstorms drops more heavy rain by Thursday.
We may break the soggy weekend curse; models hint at showers next Saturday but a pretty nice Sunday with 70s to near 80F. By late June Minnesota may be on the edge of a building heat wave.
June Is Living Up To Its (Soggy) Reputation. The wettest, most severe month of the year is on track to live up to expectations. NOAA's GFS guidance prints out some additional 2-4" amounts for much of Minnesota and the Upper Midwest by next Wednesday. You can see the projected track of "Blanca" in the eastern Pacific (missing Cabo) and another plume of tropical moisture extending from Jamaica into the Gulf of Mexico and New Orleans late in the period.
