Chance of storms in Twin Cities, southeast Minnesota on Monday

Some storms could get feisty.

Isolated thunderstorms could develop in parts of eastern Minnesota on Monday afternoon, mainly from around the Twin Cities and southeast towards Rochester. 

Not everyone will get hit by a storm, but any cells that develop have the potential to ramp up and produce heavy rain, frequent lightning and possibly even some hail. 

The Storm Prediction Center out of Norman, Oklahoma, has placed parts of the state, including the Twin Cities, in a marginal risk for severe storms. But as the National Weather Service in the Twin Cities says, the severe threat in Minnesota is "minimal at best." 

The higher chance for strong to severe storms is in Wisconsin.

Things really start to get hot and humid Thursday through the weekend, with highs Friday through Sunday nearing 90 in the Twin Cities and climbing into the mid-90s in western parts of the state. 

It'll feel very muggy outdoors because of high humidity and dewpoints soaring into the 60s and 70s, giving us that summer sticky that'll make you want to head inside and crank up the air conditioner.
