As the low moves across the Great Lakes on Tuesday, energy along the trailing cold front will help spur a few severe thunderstorms. The risk area on Tuesday stretches from the Colorado Front Range through Lower Michigan.

The main threat from severe storms is actually large hail, then damaging winds. Hail over 2″ in diameter and winds to 70 mph are possible.

Here’s a look at the timing of the storm potential where you are overnight.


Rainfall Potential

Because of the isolated nature of storms, widespread rain totals will not be much more than 1″. But pockets of heavy rain will be possible wherever there are multiple rounds of storms.

Areas of heavy rain will make for brief flooding instances in eastern South Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin Monday. Remember, never drive across flooded roads!
