Storm chances return to the area this Monday, especially during the afternoon and evening hours. Organized development looks limited which will keep severe chances to a minimum, but nothing can be completely ruled out at this time. As of now, the majority of southern Minnesota is under a marginal risk for severe development. With the severe threat on the lower side thanks to a lack of daytime heating, the main focus then shifts to the showers and general storm chances we see through the day. A cold front will continue to advance from the west, ultimately bringing higher chances for rain starting this afternoon and into the evening. Heavy rain and lightning will be possible, and if storms can become severe, strong winds and hail threaten. After the passing of the front, calmer conditions take over for the remainder of the week. Sunny skies headline the rest of the work week and into the weekend. Winds will pick up Wednesday with temps staying low in the 70s until warmer air arrives for Thursday.
