Justin Liles: Warm Tuesday with chance of storms
Our weather will remain quiet tonight and change with an approaching cold front Tuesday. Strong southerly winds ahead of this front will create an environment suitable for some strong afternoon storms. Areas that could see the best chance for some strong winds and large hail seem to be east central Minnesota and west central Wisconsin.
Following the front cold air drainage will take over and create a much cooler pattern the rest of the week. Northwest flow will lead to periods of light rain and snow toward the end of the week. Some areas north of Highway 2 could see temperatures stay cold enough to allow some snow on grassy surfaces. The weekend once again looks cold with breezy conditions and chance for snow showers.
