Big storms possible in Minnesota Sunday and Monday

Monday could be the worst of the two days.

After a mostly quiet Saturday, severe storms will be possible throughout Minnesota, including the Twin Cities, on Sunday and Monday. 

The forecast will bare paying attention to as changes will undoubtedly occur, but the Storm Prediction Center is already forecast a slight risk of severe weather for nearly all of Minnesota on Sunday, and southeastern portions of the state on Monday. 

Here's a look at areas in the slight risk for Sunday, with the image further below representative of Monday.

Damaging winds and large hail are the main threats with storms in Minnesota on Sunday, although storms that fire in North Dakota near the area of low pressure could produce a tornado or two, the Storm Prediction Center says. 

The Twin Cities office of the National Weather Service says the timing for severe storms for east-central Minnesota would be Sunday afternoon and evening before the severe threat fades and heavy rain becomes the main concern. 

Monday could bring the stormiest conditions to Minnesota and Wisconsin, with the Storm Prediction Center indicating a chance for tornadoes before storms congeal into a line producing damaging winds. 

"This period will need to continue to be monitored for possibly more significant severe weather event," the Storm Prediction Center says of Monday.

Sunday and Monday will also be the warmest of the next five days, with highs approaching 90 degrees both days. 

Do note that neither day is expected to be a complete washout like Friday was, so anyone looking to have a good time outside or at the Minnesota State Fair should simply stay aware of changing weather conditions.
