Storms could set up over the Twin Cities on Tuesday

The severe weather threat is low.

It's been rather quiet and dry across most of Minnesota for the last 10 days but that could change Tuesday afternoon as thunderstorms develop ahead of an advancing cold front. 

Showers and storms behind the cold front are ongoing this morning in west-central Minnesota. As those dissipate this morning, there is expected to be a lull in activity until storms redevelop ahead of the front this afternoon. 

The storms are expected to develop along a line from Redwood Falls to the Twin Cities to Hayward, Wisconsin, the National Weather Service says. It is not expected to be a complete washout for most places. 

Severe weather can't be ruled out, but the chances of it are quite low. Places that do see thunderstorm activity can't rule out heavy downpours and isolated strong wind gusts. These storms are expected to be slow movers, so they could dump a healthy amount of precipitation in areas that they do develop. 

Most of Minnesota will stay dry with temps in the 80s Wednesday through Sunday, and expect temps to rise into the upper 80s Friday into the weekend.
