MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

A little shower activity greeted us as we awakened from the evening slumber on Saturday, but this time, of the rain variety. Even a few thunderstorms were evident from Le Sueur through Le Center and Northfield that produced pea to dime size hail… enough to even coat the ground. Check out some of the rain totals from across the metro and statewide. These are just official rain buckets, your backyard totals will vary.

But now the rain is off to our southeast and that's where it should mostly stay. A mid-level front will set up from eastern Nebraska through Iowa and southern Wisconsin which will cause several rounds of showers and thunderstorms to develop over the same areas leading to some heavy rain. Check out the rainfall forecast from the Weather Prediction Center between now and early Monday.

Widespread amounts of 1 to 4 inches can be expected JUST to our southeast with parts of southeastern Minnesota on the fringe areas that could get a round or two of showers. For the metro though, notice it's just very light activity through early Monday.
