Flash flood watch as Twin Cities brace for 2-4 inches of rain


Dig out your umbrellas, because Wednesday is going to be a wet one.

Forecasters are predicting 2 to 4 inches of rain around the Twin Cities metro, with multiple rounds of severe thunderstorms sweeping southern Minnesota and continuing into Wednesday evening. A flash flood watch was in effect for 10 counties, including Sherburne, Isanti, Chisago, Wright, Hennepin, Anoka and Ramsey, from 10 p.m. Tuesday until 7 a.m. Thursday, said the National Weather Service in Chanhassen.

Soil is already saturated from recent storms, and river levels are higher than normal — increasing the chances of flooding. After a surprisingly wet August, storm systems will yield another heavy rainfall.
