At Peak Severe Weather Season, More Storms on the Way

The main threat from the severe weather is large hail and damaging winds. Cooler and unsettled weather returns for the end of the week with temperatures struggling to remain in the middle 50s by Friday. Primary threat would be large hail and damaging winds. Winds will be breezy with gusts up to 20 miles per hour possible.

Storms are also expected in the Tulsa area on Tuesday night, but "significant severe weather is not expected", according to the National Weather Service in Tulsa. Conditions are coming together such that some of the storms across about the southern third of Minnesota might become severe today or tonight. The next chance of thunderstorms comes on Wednesday, but the severe weather risk with that is looking fairly low at this time.

Tuesday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 84.

The storms will last into Wednesday morning before diminishing by the afternoon with highs around 80°. However, the EURO model, arguably the most consistently accurate longer-range model suggests the frontal boundary stalls across our state until Sunday due to a much slower movement of the upper level low pressure. Highs are expected to top out in the 80s for much of the week ahead, before we cool back down into the 70s leading into next weekend.

Forecast 7-day rainfall totals through 7 a.m. next Monday. Stay safe and enjoy this great spring weather while it's here!
