It looks like we're not in the clear yet.

More rain is in this weekend's forecast. Adding a couple inches of water to areas that have already experienced devastating flooding this weekcould make things even worse.

The National Weather Service says a cold front will move through Minnesota Saturday, bringing rain and thunderstorms through central and southern parts of the state.

Strong to severe storms are expected Saturday evening to Sunday morning. Those storms could bring heavy rain, flooding and damaging winds.

Northern parts of the state could also get some rain. The flood-risk in those areas aren't as high, though.

However, warnings for Mower and Rice counties expire Monday. Houston County's warning expires Tuesday.

And Steele, Waseca, Le Sueur, Scott, and Sibley counties' flood warnings won't expire until Wednesday.
