A flash flood watch is still in effect until Monday evening.
We're seeing a few isolated showers this morning. As the afternoon wears on and highs climb into the mid to upper 70s, our chances for thunderstorms increase. These would blossom out of the atmosphere and run a slight risk of becoming severe. The more sun that breaks through the clouds, the stronger the storms will be later today.
Since we've had about three inches of rain in the metro over the weekend, we'll keep our flash flood watch alive through this evening.
Additional thunderstorms are expected today, mainly late this afternoon through tonight. Some of the thunderstorms may contain heavy rain, possibly for prolonged periods. Flooding may occur in some areas...especially those that received excessive rainfall the past few days and abnormally high totals thus far this month. The excessive rainfall may cause rises in rivers, streams and may also cause urban flooding. In addition to the heavy rain, some storms may be strong to severe through tonight.
There is a slight risk of severe thunderstorms for far eastern Minnesota, including metro into western Wisconsin through tonight. Primary hazards are large hail and damaging winds.
FLASH FLOOD WATCH
A Flash Flood Watch is in effect until 7 p.m. Monday. Until the area of low pressure moves to our east on Tuesday, we could see some strong storms again on Monday.
