Novak Weather is monitoring the forecast.

After a week of mostly ideal weather conditions in Minnesota, the situation could change Monday and Tuesday as the threat of storms returns. 

According to meteorologist Tom Novak of Novak Weather, there is "increasing potential for severe weather," especially on Tuesday. "This is our best severe weather set-up so far this season," he said. 


"My concern is growing for a significant SEVERE weather event over so. MN on Tuesday," Novak Weather tweeted

Novak Weather's area of greatest risk is in southern Minnesota, very close to the Twin Cities. It's similar to what the Storm Prediction Center is forecast for Tuesday.

According to the Twin Cities office of the National Weather Service, the big unknown at this point is where the warm front will be positioned on Tuesday afternoon. Regardless, areas along and south of the front will have the best chance for severe storms, so the forecast will bear monitoring over the next 48 hours.

Novak Weather will have a video briefing that we'll post to Bring Me The News on Monday afternoon, which should provide a much clearer picture of what the main hazards and timing will be. 

It'll certainly be warm and humid on Tuesday as temps soar in the mid-to-upper 80s with dewpoints and humidity increasing significantly.
