Severe storms possible around Twin Cities Tuesday afternoon

Storms are expected to increase in coverage Tuesday afternoon.

Temperatures Tuesday will be in the mid-70s but there will be plenty of humidity, which will lead to increasing showers and thunderstorms in east-central Minnesota and western Wisconsin as the day progresses. 

Some severe storms are possible as the Storm Prediction Center has placed parts of Minnesota and Wisconsin, including the Twin Cities metro area, in a marginal risk for storms capable of producing large hail, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes.

We're not talking about a severe weather outbreak, but isolated severe storms are definitely possible Tuesday afternoon. Here's a look at the simulated future radar from the HRRR model

The models suggest storms developing around 2-3 p.m. and then moving east-southeast through the evening. Storms will lose intensity after dark, paving the way for a drier, cooler Wednesday and Thursday before rain chances return Thursday night and Friday. 

Next week could remain unsettled with multiple chances of showers as storms but the National Weather Service in the Twin Cities is hinting at drier, warmer weather beginning the week of Aug. 19, which would be just in time for the Minnesota State Fair. 

Sweating at the State Fair? We'd expect nothing less.
