18z HRRR model 6-30-19

Radar forecast valid from 7 PM Sunday to 7 PM Monday.

A frontal boundary will be stalled out well south of the Northland through Monday night.  Abundant moisture and some instability near this boundary will lead to the development of more showers and thunderstorms tonight through the day Monday, at the moment it looks like most of the rain would remain south of Highway 2 in northeast Minnesota while affecting most of northwest Wisconsin with northern Minnesota and the Arrowhead staying mainly dry tonight and Monday.

Note:  The risk for additional severe thunderstorms is very low through Monday, but lightning and heavy downpours will occur in any thunderstorm with a low risk for small hail and gusty winds as well.

18z HRRR model 6-30-19

As alluded to above there will be an abundance of moisture in place to produce torrential rainfall where storms occur tonight and Monday with potential for 1 to 2 inches of rain with locally higher amounts across central/eastern Minnesota into parts of southern Minnesota, and east through central/northern Wisconsin.

PWATS or precipitable water of 1.50 to nearly 2.25 inches with dew points in the 60s and 70s will be in place through Monday across central, eastern and southern Minnesota into north-central Wisconsin so certainly will be a heavy rain threat which could lead to some flooding later tonight or Monday.
