Minneapolis, MN – The Twin Cities area is preparing for a significant weather event starting this evening, with the National Weather Service predicting heavy rainfall and severe thunderstorms through Wednesday. Tuesday is expected to be the most impactful day, with forecasts indicating the possibility of over 2 inches of rain.

According to the National Weather Service, a strong low-pressure system moving into Minnesota will bring widespread showers and thunderstorms. The primary threats include heavy rainfall, damaging wind gusts, large hail, and a few tornadoes. The most severe weather is anticipated during Tuesday afternoon and evening.

The forecasted heavy rainfall raises concerns about potential river flooding, particularly as the region approaches Memorial Day weekend. The affected river basins include Cottonwood, Redwood, Minnesota (upstream of Mankato), and Crow River basins. Flooding in these areas could disrupt holiday plans and pose safety risks.
