Soggy Monday for Minnesota with threat for excessive rain and large hail

Organized severe storms aren't expected but isolated warnings are possible.

Similar to what southern Minnesota experience on Saturday, storms producing very heavy rain in addition to a low-end severe threat is expected throughout the day Monday. 

Most of Minnesota has a chance to see excessive rainfall, the highest chance of which exists once again in the southern part of the state. 

The Twins Cities office of the National Weather Service says 2-4 inches of rain are possible from the slow-moving storms, which will lead to possible flash flooding in small rivers and creeks. 

Organized severe weather is not expected, although some of the storms could flare up quickly and produce large hail before pulsing back down below severe limits, the NWS says. 

The best chance for severe weather will be along and south of Interstate 90.
