After a night and morning of torrential rainfall in southern Minnesota and western Wisconsin, things could get a bit wild again with redeveloping thunderstorms Monday night. 

According to the National Weather Service, the best chance for storms is across central Minnesota, with computer model guidance showing multiple scenarios that could play out, though all of them again show the potential for heavy rain that could lead to flash flooding. 

The weather service notes that the HRRR model is showing potential for a swath of 3-4 inches or rain. Here's the HRRR model's radar simulation, which has east-central Minnesota getting hit pretty hard.

The NAM computer model simulation is similar, with storms firing in northeast and east-central Minnesota. It should be noted that widespread severe weather isn't expected, but isolated damaging winds are possible in the strongest storms.

"Luckily, the area of concern for the heaviest rainfall looks to be displaced north of the areas hardest hit by heavy rain and flooding overnight," the NWS said.
