StormTeam Outlook: Sunday, May 22nd
Storms on the Horizon
We saw back to back days of at least 80 degree weather this weekend. Now, we are going to see slightly cooler temperatures with rain moving back into the region just in time for the start of the week.
A slow-moving cold front marching across the Dakotas and into Minnesota will spark some afternoon thunderstorms tomorrow. Unfortunately, temperatures in the 70s with added humidity will only create a more unstable atmosphere, so it's possible some thunderstorms could be severe, especially south and west of the Twin Ports. The biggest threat with theses storms will be frequent cloud-to-ground lightning and golf ball size hail.
Sunshine will return on Tuesday, but the atmosphere may be just unstable enough to create a few more isolated thunderstorms. Then, another area of low pressure will increase the threat for showers and thunderstorms for Wednesday and Thursday.
Thanks for reading, and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
