Storms are expected to return to the metro area after rain and gusting winds pushed through the state Monday.
KSTP Chief Morning Meteorologist Ken Barlow said rain will continue to be plentiful the next few days.
Barlow said the metro area will see a break from storms briefly Tuesday morning before another surge of rainfall develops later in the day. He added the weather for Tuesday night and Wednesday "looks pretty wet."
Barlow said showers and thunderstorms will become more numerous by Wednesday morning and there is the potential for the metro area to see more than 2 inches of rain by Thursday.
Meanwhile, residents of Northfield will be busy Tuesday morning after a round of strong storms moved through the area Monday.
At least one person was hurt when he was hit in the face by a board blown by strong winds.
Others said they will have to rebuild brand-new fences and patch roofs.
Heaviest of the rain and thunder just south of the metro moving through Northfield...rain has been torrential with 1"-3" reported in just an hour in many spots. A break and then more rain later this morning will last on and off this afternoon. #kstp pic.twitter.com/wz9HTa9Zut— ken barlow (@kbarlowkstp) September 18, 2018
