The finale of the Wet Summer 2016 was one more heavy rain event on the day before Autumn.

A slow-moving weather pattern set the stage for more heavy rains. As the sun set on September 20, thunderstorms developed along a warm front that was from Nebraska through far Southern Minnesota. Heavy rains fell at Waseca and Steele Counties and across the southern Twin Cities metro area. These storms developed north of a warm front that stretched from a weak area of low pressure over southeast South Dakota eastward across southwest and south central Minnesota. Over the next 24 hours the front had become more or less stationary parked across southern Minnesota. During the late afternoon and evening of September 21, strong thunderstorms formed in two places, a narrow band across the northern Twin Cities and over south central and southeast Minnesota. Heavy rains fell over the northern Twin Cities over the span of about seven hours from about 5pm to around midnight, with lighter rains after that.

The highest total found so far with a manual rain gauge in the northern Twin Cities was 8.11 inches from a Hennepin County CoCoRaHS Observer in Maple Grove. Some other higher totals found across the northern Twin Cities included 7.65 inches in northern Fridley in Anoka County. Some Hennepin County totals include: 6.27 inches at Maple Grove, 6.15 inches at Brooklyn Park and 5.88 inches at Brooklyn Center. 5.22 inches fell at Lexington in northern Ramsey County. There were sixty abandoned cars with water least to their doors in northwest metro suburbs during the height of the storm.

Another area of heavy rains fell in an area from Mankato eastward to the Mississippi River and then into Wisconsin. The highest 24-hour total ending on the morning of September 22 was 7.64 inches at the U of M Southern Research and Outreach Center in Waseca. This brought the two-day total at that location to 10.16 inches, including the 2.52 inches of rain that fell with the first wave on September 20-21. This is the highest two-day total ever recorded in Waseca. The large total reported by the nearby airport in Waseca did not correspond well with nearby rain gauge readings. The ground was already saturated at places like Waseca and this exacerbated the flooding situation. There were many reports of basements flooded, closed roads and standing water in Waseca and other locations as well. The indoor ice arena in Waseca had six inches of water on the freshly-iced rink. Loon Lake in Waseca rose over its banks and is flooding nearby streets in town. The rising waters of Fountain Lake in Albert Lea encroached into town during the day on September 23, detouring Highway 65 (Main Street) near the lake.

I-90 was closed for a time in Austin on September 22.

The National Weather Service in Chanhassen compiled a summary of the September 20-22 heavy rain event.
