The metro has already seen a lot of rain over the past couple of days, and as storms continue through the night and into Monday morning, flooding is the real issue, according to KSTP Meteorologist Nicole Mitchell.

Much of the metro was under a tornado watch for several hours Sunday, but the worst of the severe weather has now made its way into Wisconsin.

When Monday rolls around, the metro will feel much cooler, with a high of 77 and a big drop in humidity.

There could be some spotty storms Monday night into Tuesday, Mitchell said, but nothing severe is expected.
