Midweek storms and warmth

Here’s your Monday evening forecast for June 10, 2024 from Minnesota’s Weather Authority and Meteorologist Wren Clair.

What a gorgeous start to the workweek! Tonight we’re looking at increasing cloud cover and rain and storms developing first across western Minnesota overnight. Rain and storms track eastward into tomorrow morning, leading to a soggy Tuesday morning commute. By late morning we should dry out with decreasing cloud cover into Tuesday afternoon.

Isolated strong to severe storms develop east of I-35 late Tuesday afternoon into early Tuesday evening with the passing of a cold front. I don’t expect widespread storms late tomorrow. Western Wisconsin stands the greatest shot at a few late Tuesday storms with isolated severe storms. Some hail and gusty winds are the main threats.

The best chance for stronger thunderstorms this week is Wednesday. Before the rain, temperatures climb into the mid 80s, and dew points will be in the humid mid to upper 60s. We’ll have some scattered rain and non-severe storms during the daytime, with severe storms possible late afternoon into Wednesday evening. As the storms move farther east near and after sunset, they could still produce some strong winds and some hail. Rain totals through midweek should range from 0.50” to 1.0” for most, and locally higher totals with the strongest storms.

This Father’s Day weekend forecast also features the likely chance for scattered rain and storms both Saturday and Sunday.

Have a wonderful night!
