A severe weather alert is on hold in southwest Minnesota for another 14 to 18 hours, but storms could begin to brew Monday night in the area while there's a slight risk for severe weather throughout the metro Tuesday morning.
Monday, the metro will be steamy with hazy sunshine and a high of 91 as dew points hover in upper 60s.
Later Monday, storms will fire up in the western Dakotas and Nebraska by mid-afternoon and begin their long journey east. These storms could form into several lines or clusters and have marginally severe components as they move into southern Minnesota overnight Monday and early Tuesday.
Assuming some Tuesday afternoon sun, the severe weather threat Tuesday evening concerns a cold front rolling through late in the day -- this will be a more widespread severe weather outbreak (including the metro) with large hail and damaging winds as the main focus.
