Next chance of severe storms in Minnesota looks to be Tuesday

Details will be refined over the next 48 hours.

After multiple tornado warnings in central Minnesota on Saturday, things dry up outside of some isolated showers with cooler temperatures on Sunday and Monday, but another bout of severe weather appears possible Tuesday. 

The focus from the weather service at this point puts the best chance for hefty storms Tuesday in south-central and southeast Minnesota, and further south and east into Iowa and Wisconsin, respectively. That's where a slight risk (level 2 of 5 on the severe scale) is already in place.

It's way too early to get caught up in what could happen, but the Storm Prediction Center is already suggesting that conditions will be favorable for "very large hail and perhaps a tornado or two." 

The key to Tuesday will be exactly where the severe weather is expected, and the yellow area in the map above will almost certainly be adjusted over the next 48 hours. 

For now, here's what one of the mid-range radar simulations (GIF might not load in all browsers) has happening on Tuesday.
