There's a chance for some severe weather in MN this evening


We could see some severe weather on Sunday.

After morning thunderstorms that brought heavy rain to much of Minnesota, the possibility for storms returns Sunday afternoon and evening ahead of an approaching cold front, the National Weather Service says.

The thunderstorms are expected to start near the border of Minnesota and the Dakotas late Sunday afternoon, before moving eastward towards the Twin Cities Sunday evening into early Monday.

There's a slight chance for severe weather in west-central and northwestern Minnesota, with the main threats being damaging winds, large hail and heavy rain, the weather service says.

While there is less of a risk (a marginal risk) of severe storms in eastern Minnesota and western Wisconsin – the storms are expected to weaken as they move east.

It's expected to be warm again Sunday, although not as hot and humid as it was earlier this weekend. Here's a look at the current dewpoints across the state (dewpoints between 55 and 65 is when it starts to become sticky, the National Weather Service says):

More storms this week

A slow-moving low pressure system that'll make its way into Minnesota late Tuesday will bring the chance for "several periods of prolonged showers and thunderstorms" through Thursday, the National Weather Service says.

The storms aren't expected to be severe, but the heavy rain could cause some flooding.

Temperatures will be cooler compared to this weekend, with highs in the 80s for the Twin Cities on Monday, but then in the 70s for mid-week.
