Weather officials are urging Minnesotans to stay weather ready Sunday night into Monday as the risk for severe weather increases.

Sunday – the first day of summer – is expected to be sunny and warm for most of the day, but isolated non-severe thunderstorms are possible in central and southern Minnesota.

However, more widespread and potentially severe storms are expected after 3 a.m. Monday as storms race from west to east. The main threat with the storms will be damaging winds in excess of 60 mph, the National Weather Service says.

Winds could down trees and cause power outages in the area, the weather service notes. The storms could also bring "blinding downpours" and large hail, AccuWeather says.

Skies are expected to clear for Tuesday, ahead of another bout of storms expected Wednesday, reports note.
