Minneapolis experienced the most rainfall it had seen in two months, but is still on track for a dry fall reports the Pioneer Press.

The Minneapolis-St. Paul airport recorded 0.21 inches of rain by 5 p.m. on Friday. This brings the total rainfall Minneapolis has seen to 0.59 inches this fall, reports the Pioneer Press.

Almost all parts of Minnesota are experiencing a drought, with 30 percent of the state is experiencing an extreme drought. A welcomed rainfall is expected next Thursday through Sunday.

The drought has continued from the summer months, reported AccuWeather.

Rivers during the summer months dropped 30-50 feet below seasonal norms. Barges had difficulty traveling up the Mississippi, and it seems the problem could continue into the autumn months, reports AccuWeather.
