MINNEAPOLIS — More scattered showers are on tap Thursday afternoon and evening, mainly across southern Minnesota.

Clouds and a northeast breeze make it tough to warm much with highs in the low 70s.

After some heavier downpours, the rain should be on the lighter side Thursday evening. There is a slight risk for severe storms moving into Friday with wind and flooding being the biggest threats.

Off-and-on rainfall, heavy at times, will continue all day Friday into Saturday. Rain totals across southern Minnesota will be 2-4 inches by Saturday night, with .5-1.5 inches across northern Minnesota.

A Flood Watch will be in effect across southern Minnesota from 5 p.m. Friday until 1 p.m. Saturday.

We warm a little more into the mid-70s on Friday and near 80 on Saturday, but the sun will be tough to come by.

High pressure finally brings a break in the rain with sunshine on Sunday and Monday, helping warm temperatures back into the 80s.

Spotty showers are back in the forecast for Tuesday, but don't look to linger long.
