Minneapolis/St. Paul forecast from the KARE 11 weather team.


MINNEAPOLIS -- Showers and thunderstorms that remained mostly north of the Twin Cities for the first half of the day are now pushing through the metro and will continue to do so for this evening. No severe weather is expect although thunder and lightning are along with some pockets of heavy rain possible. The storms linger overnight before pushing east in the early morning hours. Overnight lows drop to the low to middle 60s.

We'll see clouds to start Saturday but sunshine by afternoon squeezing out a dry day. Most of Sunday should remain dry too in the Twin Cities and for much of the state during the DAYLIGHT hours. By Sunday evening we'll see storms develop in western Minnesota and move east in the overnight and evening hours Sunday night. These storms are expected to be strong at times. We are expecting a large possibility of severe weather Sunday evening into the early hours of Monday.

All that activity should clear out by Labor Day Monday with sun breaking out and highs near 80. The first day of school for many on Tuesday looks dry with a high of 78.
