Synopsis: Good Monday morning! A disturbance is moving through southern Minnesota which will lead to unsettled conditions in that region today while the remainder of the region looks largely dry. However, tomorrow a cold front will push through leading to a severe risk across the eastern Dakotas and western Minnesota. Some of these storms will be capable of producing large hail, damaging winds, and even a few tornadoes. Temperatures will briefly fall below normal midweek, then trend warmer again to end the week. The next chance for appreciable precipitation looks to come Friday and into the weekend. Have a blessed day!
