MINNESOTA WHILE THE STORMS OVER THE NORTH HAVE DIMINISHED AND
MOVED INTO ONTARIO. THE HIGHEST RAINFALL REPORTS FROM THIS MORNING

A WARM AND MUGGY DAY IS ON TAP ACROSS MUCH OF THE STATE. CLOUDS

SOUTH TO THE IOWA BORDER AND EAST TO THE WISCONSIN BORDER. SHOWERS
AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL REDEVELOP LATE THIS AFTERNOON AND CONTINUE
TONIGHT. INITIAL STORMS WILL BE OVER WESTERN MINNESOTA SPREADING
NORTHEASTWARD WITH TIME. HEAVY RAINFALL IS LIKELY WITH THE
THUNDERSTORMS AND THEY ARE EXPECTED TO MOVE OVER ANY GIVEN
LOCATION FOR SEVERAL HOURS BEFORE SHIFTING EASTWARD. FLASH
FLOODING IS A POSSIBILITY WITH THESE STORMS TONIGHT...ESPECIALLY
IN AREAS THAT RECEIVED HEAVY RAINFALL THIS MORNING AND LAST NIGHT.
DAMAGING WIND GUSTS ARE POSSIBLE WITH THE STRONGEST STORMS. HIGHS
THIS AFTERNOON WILL REACH THE MIDDLE 70S FAR NORTHEAST AND FAR
NORTHWEST...WITH LOW 90S SOUTHEAST. LOWS TONIGHT WILL RANGE FROM
THE UPPER 50S ALONG THE NORTH SHORE...AND THE MIDDLE 70S SOUTH.

STATE...WHILE LOW PRESSURE TO THE WEST MOVES NORTHEAST ACROSS
NORTHWESTERN MINNESOTA AND THE COLD FRONT GRADUALLY MOVES
EASTWARD...USHERING IN COOLER AND LESS HUMID AIR OVER THE WEST.
HEAT INDEX VALUES WILL ONCE AGAIN CLIMB INTO THE UPPER 80S AND LOW
90S OVER THE SOUTHWEST QUARTER OF MINNESOTA. SHOWERS AND STORMS
WILL LIKELY BE ONGOING EARLY IN THE MORNING AND WILL END BEFORE
