Tuesday morning's storms rolled through as expected bringing a quick 1 to 2 inches of rain across the region with occasional wind gusts of 35 to 55 mph.
These were the "leftovers" from Monday's bigger Dakota storms. Now, we just hang out and wait in our warm and muggy atmosphere until a cold front swings though the area from northwest to southeast in the late afternoon and early evening.
If we can get proper development, our later Tuesday storms will contain a more widespread severe weather outbreak (including the Twin Cities metro) with large hail and damaging winds as the main focus –- although a very isolated tornado threat can't be completely ruled out

The good news is that these evening storms will blow out this steamy atmosphere. As humidity drops tonight, we're in store for a beautiful Wednesday and Thursday.
