Some much needed rain hit the Twin Cities Saturday afternoon.

KSTP.com meteorologist Sam Ryan says the last time we saw measurable rain, that was more than a tenth of an inch in the metro, was on Aug. 6.  

“Thankfully we'll break our dry-spell and pick up .25 to .50 of an inch with showers,” said Sam.  

The tropical moisture that has caused massive amounts of flooding in the east Rockies-and primarily Colorado-is finally pushing east. This will result in increasing clouds through the afternoon and the arrival of those showers.  

Sam expects a dry day Sunday, with a few spotty sprinkles over the lunch hour. Sunday night will be clear and cool, with temps falling into the mid-50s.

Monday will be off to a chilly start, then mostly sunny and comfortably cool. The high will be near 70.
