After a relatively cool, and comfortable holiday weekend, our weather pattern is going to be a bit more summer-like.
A warm front tracks into the area on Tuesday, not only bringing warmer temperatures, but also an increase in moisture. It will feel very uncomfortable as we head into Tuesday afternoon as temperatures approach the upper 80s to near 90°.
During the late afternoon and evening hours, rain and thunderstorms are forecast to develop along a cold front from central Minnesota to northwest Iowa. Some of these storms could turn severe weather damaging wind of 60 mph, quarter size hail or larger, and isolated tornadoes. As the evening progresses, the tornado threat will go down. The complex of storms will track to the east/southeast through the KWWL viewing area Tuesday night, mainly after 10 PM. Damaging wind gusts and large hail will be the primary threat, along with heavy rainfall and lightning.
These storms should move out by early Wednesday morning, and then there is another threat for storms Wednesday night.
This is still a developing situation, so stay tuned to KWWL for further updates.
