It looks like a wet Wednesday night in the Twin Cities.

KSTP Chief Meteorologist Dave Dahl reports showers and thunderstorms have made their way toward the metro area from southeastern South Dakota and southwestern Minnesota.

The rain has already begun and could become heavy as the evening goes on, though severe weather or flooding is not expected.

That's not the case in extreme southeastern Minnesota, however, where Dahl said there is a good chance of severe weather developing this evening, including the potential for large hail and damaging winds.

Dahl said the heaviest rain should wrap up around 10 p.m. But periods of light rain are expected through the night, and again on Thursday when a temperature of around 50 is expected. 

The weekend, though, looks more promising. Dahl said temperatures are expected to climb back into the low 60s Friday with temperatures in the low- to mid-60s expected over the weekend. And Dahl's forecast calls for more sunshine than clouds each day.
