A humid Sunday, with periods of showers and t-storms

Severe weather is possible

Have a “plan B” for your Sunday/Sunday evening outdoor activities. You may have to scoot indoors at times due to rain, lightning and strong winds.

Minnesota and western Wisconsin will have periods of showers and thunderstorms this Sunday/Sunday evening and Sunday night. A few severe thunderstorms will be possible, and some areas will see heavy rain at times.

The National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center shows a slight risk of severe weather (shaded yellow) for Minnesota and Wisconsin Sunday and Sunday night:
