Southern Minnesota is drying out after several inches of rain fell Tuesday into to the early morning hours.

National Weather Service meteorologist Mike Griesinger said the heaviest rain fell across southeastern Minnesota and there was a, “Pretty widespread swath four to five inches in there.

Rivers are on the rise but Griesinger explained, “We’re not expecting significant flooding out of it but more minor, nuisance flooding as it comes out of its banks.”

Griesinger said the rest of the week looks great — dry, sunshine and temps in the 70’s.
