MINNEAPOLIS -- Storms are firing up this evening and will be spotty through about midnight before a more robust complex of thunderstorms develops. Stay tuned for severe weather updates this evening, but most of the action does hold off until after dark. We will likely see the heaviest rain with totals near 2" in some locations in line from south central Minnesota to northwestern Wisconsin. This includes the Twin Cities, especially the south metro. Large hail and very strong wind gusts will be the main threat with any storms that cross the severe threshold.

Storms linger into the first few hours of daylight on Labor Day but an overall clearing trend will bring us a cooler, sunnier, and less humid afternoon to enjoy! We stay quiet and overall partly cloudy for back to school on Tuesday and Wedensday with highs in the upper 70s for most . Storms then enter the forecast Wednesday overnight into Thursday.
