Minnesota could see some severe weather this week


Minnesota could see some severe weather this week.

Sunday will be the last dry day in our recent stretch of sunny, dry weather, the National Weather Service says. The agency notes a "more summer-like and active weather pattern" is in store for the work week.


The forecast calls for temperatures in the 80s Sunday, with plenty of sunshine. (All this dry weather has caused some dangerous fire weather conditions in northern Minnesota, however.)

But a storm system is moving through the Northern Plains, which could bring some wet weather as early as Sunday night for western Minnesota, the weather service says.

It's the start of a week of rainy weather. The National Weather Service says precipitation is possible "nearly every day" this week, but there will be three main periods for showers and thunderstorms: Monday and Monday night, Wednesday into Thursday, and then Friday into Saturday.

Some places could pick up as much as three inches of rain:


The chance for some severe weather comes Monday afternoon and evening, and then again on Wednesday, the National Weather Service saysNOAA's storm prediction center shows there's a slight risk of severe weather for a large area of Minnesota on Monday.


The forecast shows temperatures this week will be 5-10 degrees above average, the weather service says. The Twin Cities is expected to see temperatures in the 70s and 80s for much of the week.
