The risk for isolated severe storms is once again across the Upper Midwest on Tuesday. Severe Weather Continues to Plague Upper Midwest The reason for the threat for severe is because of another low pressure system pulling across the area.

Since there will be ample moisture in the atmosphere as well, any of these storms can produce heavy downpours.

This heavy rain coupled with the already saturated ground means that flash flooding is a major concern for the first half of this week.
