Severe weather will be likely across portions of southern Minnesota and northern Iowa this afternoon and evening. A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect for much of southern Minnesota and northern Iowa until 8pm. The best chance for severe weather within our region will be between 3pm and 8pm. Large hail and damaging winds with be the main threats with today's storms.

Storm activity will exit the region after 8pm, making way for quiet conditions the rest of the evening and into the overnight. Temperatures will cool off into the lower 60s. Skies will gradually clear and winds will be light out of the north at 3-8 mph.

Drier conditions are on the way for the second half of the weekend as high pressure takes control of the region on Sunday. Expect mostly sunny skies and highs in the lower 80s with similar conditions on tap for Monday, making for a great start to the work week.

Our next storm chance comes Monday night into early Tuesday with a chance for showers and thunderstorms. Tuesday looks to be the coolest day of the week with highs in the upper 70s. A few early morning showers and storms are possible with clouds lasting throughout much of the day. Additional showers and thunderstorms are possible for the afternoon and evening.

Wednesday will see a break in the precipitation, bringing mostly sunny skies to the region. Temperatures will be in the lower 80s. Temperatures warm slightly back into the mid and upper 80s for the late week with mostly to partly sunny skies on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Both days could see a chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon.
