ST. CLOUD – Storms dumped more rain on Central Minnesota overnight with no end in sight until Monday morning.

A flash flood watch was been extended until Monday afternoon for most of Southern and Central Minnesota. Since Saturday, rainfall totals have exceeded 3-5 inches in Central Minnesota.

The National Weather Service says 5-7 inches fell in a small area near Sauk Centre.

The National Weather Service says we officially had 1.68 inches of rain yesterday (Saturday) at the St. Cloud Regional Airport.  It’s a record for the date, breaking the old record of 1.43 inches set back in 1958. We officially had 6.74 inches of rain in St. Cloud in the month of May.  And, we’ve had 13.84 inches of rain over the past three months.

St. Cloud State University earth and atmospheric sciences professor Bob Weisman says that St. Michael reported an inch and a half of rain in one hour on Saturday evening and Clearwater had an inch of rain in just 20 minutes.

Additional heavy rain with 2-4 inches in spots is expected through Monday morning. The additional rain could lead to flooding throughout Minnesota.
