Sluggish storms dump heavy rain over north central Minnesota and parts of central Minnesota.

On June 12, 2016 a low pressure area was over southeast North Dakota with a warm front extending eastward across central Minnesota and into Wisconsin. Thunderstorms developed to the north of this front during the day on the 12th over north central Minnesota and strong thunderstorms also developed across west central Minnesota as well. Minnesota was in the dividing line between a heat wave (with a 101 degrees reported at the Canby Airport in Yellow Medicine County on June 12) and cooler, but still muggy air to the east.

The heaviest rain fell in two areas. The highest amounts fell in a sparsely populated area of southern Koochiching County were rainfall amounts up to six inches fell. The highest total found so far was 5.85 inches 5 miles west of Togo in northern Itasca County. There hasn't been reports of major flooding so far with this rain. A good portion of this area was on the dry side before the heavy rains.

Another area of heavy rain fell in an arc from Paynesville through the northern Twin Cities Metropolitan area and into west central Wisconsin. 2.47 inches fell on White Bear Lake, causing the lake to raise two tenths of a foot. White Bear Lake is now at its highest level since July 15, 2008. The highest rainfall amount found in central Minnesota was 4.24 inches at the Paynesville Airport in southern Streans County.

Below is a list of rainfall reports gathered by the National Weather Service.
