Way Over Our Heads podcast: Severe weather Monday, unsettled week ahead

It's going to be a steamy week after a threat of severe storms Monday.
Author:

The storms that impacted parts of Minnesota Sunday night and early Monday morning are setting up the conditions that may spark more severe weather later Monday afternoon and evening. 

“And when that outbreak begins,” says climatologist Kenny Blumenfeld, in this week's episode of the Way Over Our Heads podcast, “it’s probably going to be driven by where the overnight storms kind of terminated.” 

Blumenfeld says he believes the next round of storms will likely originate “within 75 miles of the Twin Cities and then move eastward to southeastward from there, possibly across the Twin Cities.” 

The biggest threat from these storms, according to Blumenfeld, will be heavy rain and large hail but there’s also some risk of damaging winds and tornadoes. 

The heat and humidity will continue through the week, and Blumenfeld says two tropical weather systems may “throw some extra moisture our way later this week,” possibly setting the stage for heavy rains. 

Also in this episode, a recap of the severe weather event of Aug. 14-15 that spawned numerous tornadoes, a look at why we’ve seen such vivid lightning displays this summer, and how the dwindling hours of daylight help drive the transition from summer to fall weather conditions.
