Strong storms are a possibility across most of central Minnesota today. The National Weather Service is reporting:

Thunderstorms are likely across most of central and southern Minnesota and west central Wisconsin this morning. The main hazard this morning will be locally heavy rainfall and possible flooding.
This afternoon, thunderstorms will be more likely across far south central Minnesota, and into west central Wisconsin. Some of the storms could be locally severe with large hail and damaging winds. In addition, heavy rainfall is also possible which may lead to localized flooding.

They are predicting new rainfall of a tenth to a quarter of an inch. Expect more if a storm happens.

The good news is that the storms shouldn't amount to anything super severe, and once we get past today Wednesday and Thursday are supposed to be "dry and pleasant" before the heat and humidity return for the weekend.
