Minnesota is in for stormy weather the next two days.

The National Weather Service issued a flash flood watch for 32 counties in central, western and southern Minnesota. The watch includes the seven-county Twin Cities metro area.

Local weather teams had slightly different takes on what's to come.

Some areas of the state could receive up to 3 inches of rain, WCCO says. WCCO meterologist Mike Augustyniak says there will be an increasing chance of rain in the metro through Wednesday, with the heaviest and steadiest rain falling through the night and into Thursday.

KARE 11 says Thursday afternoon and into the evening, showers and thunderstorms will develop in western Iowa and southwest Minnesota. Initially storms there could be severe, he says.

KSTP says storms that develop Wednesday will taper off Thursday morning, but they are expected to redevelop later in the day.
