Rain, storms possible from the Twin Cities to the north Tuesday night

Here’s your Tuesday evening forecast for August 1, 2023 from Minnesota’s Weather Authority and Meteorologist Wren Clair.

Good evening! Scattered showers and storms are in place this evening mainly across central and northern Minnesota. The risk for strong to severe storms is more likely west-northwest of the Twin Cities, especially north of a line from to Fergus Falls to Bemidji to International Falls. Late overnight into early tomorrow morning, isolated strong storms are possible across northeastern Minnesota.

These storms are developing along a very weak front. That front will drop south tonight through Wednesday, which will lead to a few storms possible tomorrow morning for the Twin Cities. We’ll catch a lull in storm activity after that morning convection, with redevelopment into the late afternoon and evening. The storms later in the day could lead to a few strong to severe storms for central Minnesota into western Wisconsin (large hail and damaging winds being the main concerns).

Tomorrow through Thursday it’ll feel hot and humid. Friday features lower humidity and weekend temperatures into next week look to be much more comfortably in the mid to low-80s.
