The early spring storm system that just rolled through Minnesota brought 6 to 8 inches of snowfall across the Twin Cities and dumped more than a foot of snow in areas of northern Minnesota.

After a snowy end to March, many Minnesotans are looking forward to some nice spring weather.

But will we continue to have a cold, wet spring or will April bring dry warmth? Or vice-versa? Or something else? The answer is: probably, maybe, yes.

Let's take a look at the National Weather Service Climate Prediction Center's official 30-day forecast and see what kind of weather might be in store for April 2024 across the North Star State.

Minnesota's April Precipitation Outlook💦

The U.S. Drought monitor has the majority of Minnesota currently listed in the moderate drought range, with the far southeast tip of the state and areas of north-central Minnesota experiencing severe drought.

Unfortunately, the latest precipitation prediction for The Land of 10,000 Lakes does not offer much hope for a rainy relief from the drought conditions.

According to the latest NOAA 30-day forecast, most of Minnesota is predicted to have equal chances for below-normal precipitation and above-normal precipitation. So at this point, it could go either way.
