MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Heavy rains will fall in many drought-ridden parts of Minnesota from Monday night through Tuesday morning.
Meteorologist Chris Shaffer says surveillance for a severe thunderstorm is in effect from many central Minnesota counties until 2 a.m.Tuesday.
The storms hit northwest Minnesota on Monday night, with only reports of hail and tree damage so far.
There will be a slight chance of bad weather at night in the Twin Cities, but it will most likely rain throughout the area.
Localized rain and flood rounds can occur in various parts of the state on Tuesday afternoon, with the system leaving Minnesota at dinner time. Some severe weather is also possible later Tuesday in the extreme southeast and southwest Minnesota.
On Wednesday, we will probably see our highest temperature of the coldest afternoon in over a month. Sun and light wind are forecast, and the dew points will drop to the upper 50. Thursday will also be dry and pleasant.
But the humidity will return on Friday, and we could be back in the 90s by Saturday afternoon.
