Hot and stormy weather continues

Widespread temperatures in the 90s by late week

Minnesota remains active the next few days with occasional showers and storms. Meanwhile, temperatures are on the rise, and most of the state will see 90s by the weekend.

Staying Stormy

While the rain Sunday evening into Monday morning was beneficial for many parts of Minnesota, there was a very heavy corridor of rain from Wisconsin to the Minnesota River Valley that caused areas of flooding.

Instability keeps chances for storms around through at least Thursday, with what currently looks like spottier activity Tuesday and Thursday, and more widespread activity Wednesday.
