Minnesota Weather AlmanacJune is typically the wettest month in Minnesota, but after days of gray skies we’d like some SUN, please! At least a tornado isn’t in store for us today as it was in 1981:

“Around 4:50 p.m. on June 14, 1981, an F3 (158-206 mph) touched down near Edina in Hennepin County and traveled for 15 miles through portions of Minneapolis and Roseville until it dissipated near Lake Owasso in Ramsey County. It damaged residences in the St. Anthony Park neighborhood near the historic Gibbs Farm as well as the Har-Mar Shopping Center in Roseville, where most of the 83 injuries occurred. Total damages were estimated at $47 million.”

From Minnesota Weather Almanac by Mark W. Seeley (p. 195)
