Partly to mostly cloudy skies will occur today with a chance for showers and a few thunderstorms. Highs will be in the 70's. There is a risk of severe thunderstorms late Monday afternoon into Monday night.

Some severe storms are possible Monday afternoon into Tuesday morning. Damaging winds up to 70 mph, large hail to 2" in diameter, and a few tornadoes possible. While some heavy rain is possible a prolonged period of extreme rainfall rates is not expected. These storms are somewhat conditional on the atmosphere, so stay tuned!

Three rivers in NE MN are expected to reach minor flood stage into Sunday. The St. Louis River at Scanlon (which may peak higher), the South Kawishiwi near Ely (also could peak higher), and the Vermilion at Crane Lake. View river gauges at

Several flood warnings remain in effect across NE MN. From Lake Vermilion and across the Littlefork River headwaters, rivers are beginning to come down but flooding continues. The Cloquet River upstream of Island Lake has crested but very high water remains. Downstream of Island Lake, river levels are still going up, leading to excessive flooding.
