Fortunately, it doesn't look like it's going to snow.

The weather will again turn interesting this week as another strong low-pressure system is expected to impact the nation's midsection, including Minnesota. 

Good news: No snow is in the forecast as temps should stay warm enough to keep everything liquid. Bad news: It might rain a lot, and the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has already outlined a potential severe weather threat for parts of far southern Minnesota.

Take a look at the Day 4 severe weather outlook from the SPC. Folks in southern Minnesota, and even more so in Iowa, will need to pay close attention to the forecast and be aware of possible severe weather.

Of course, the track of the storm system will dictate which areas are most at risk for strong storms, but conditions could be ripe for some boomers . 

Predicting severe weather this far out is no guarantee, but rain – heavy at times – looks fairly likely for the southern half of Minnesota Wednesday and Thursday, in addition to strong winds Thursday and Friday. 


Temperatures should warm throughout the week, with highs Sunday in the Twin Cities 5-10 degrees warmer than they were Saturday, and then in the 50s and low 60s most of the week.
