Ely streets flooded as storms sweep through parts of Minnesota


Thunderstorms with strong winds and heavy downpours passed through northeast Minnesota Saturday evening, causing some flooding in the Ely area.

There's a flood advisory in effect until 10:30 p.m. Saturday for parts of Cass, Aitkin and Crow Wing counties, where flooding may occur in low-lying areas.

The National Weather Service issued a severe thunderstorm watch for northern parts of Minnesota and Wisconsin, but it was canceled before the scheduled 10 p.m. expiration.

Scattered storms could still move through parts of Minnesota Saturday night, according to the National Weather Service.

Keep an eye on watches and warnings as they are updated here.

Sunday's weather should be similar to Saturday's, according to KARE 11, with a cloudy start to the day and some scattered showers and thunderstorms developing later in the day. Southern Minnesota could see more storm activity, though.

High temperatures will also be about the same - from the upper 7os to the mid-80s, according to KARE 11.

By Monday night, we'll see high pressure moving in, the National Weather Service says. That'll mean less humid air and a stretch of several sunny days with seasonal temperatures in the 70s and 80s.
