MINNESOTA, USA – The rain has mostly ended and skies are clear across the region. There is still a slight chance of a pop-up storm over western Wisconsin and southeastern Minnesota this afternoon, but most of us should stay dry the rest of the day.

Dew points start to rise tonight making it a bit humid. Temperatures will also rise into the 80s tomorrow. The increase in heat and humidity will set the stage for a few chances for strong to severe storms early in the afternoon, with a more widespread threat Wednesday night.

Due to the threat of impactful thunderstorms, Wednesday is a Weather Warning Day. It is a day to pay more attention to the weather, especially in the afternoon and evening hours.

Right now, the main threat is large hail, but storms could also include damaging wind gusts and possibly a tornado or two. The chance of large hailstones (larger than 2 inches in diameter) is highlighted in the shaded area below.

Skies are clear again by Thursday, and the rest of the week should be quiet, with a slight drop in humidity and more sunshine. However, the chance of more rain returns this weekend, with the wettest day appearing on Saturday. Our first 90 degree day of the season could happen by Father's Day on Sunday.
