This large area of thunderstorms will advance eastward across western Minnesota this morning and likely reach the metro area by early this afternoon. Southerly winds will range from 10 to 20 miles per hour already by tomorrow morning, and lasting through the day. Showers and storms will become more numerous during this week as well, including chances for severe weather through Wednesday evening.

The National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center has upgraded much of the KVOE listening area to a slight risk for severe storms including Lyon, Chase, Greenwood, Morris and Wabaunsee counties.

Windy and warm conditions return Tuesday, with another round of showers and stronger storms late Tuesday night and again for Wednesday, as heavy rain, gusty winds and large hail remain the greatest threats for severe weather through the middle of this week.

Thursday is likely to give us a chance to dry out and continue cooling. However, the EURO model, arguably the most consistently accurate longer-range model suggests the frontal boundary stalls across our state until Sunday due to a much slower movement of the upper level low pressure.
