The worst of the heavy rain threat has shifted southeast of the MPX area with the LLJ early this morning. We have let Flash Flood Warnings expire overnight, but have replaced them with a couple of Areal Flood Warnings that continue through tonight to cover ongoing flooding seen along the Watonwan, Blue Earth, Le Sueur, Cannon, and Straight rivers and their tributaries in south central MN. Though the main heavy rain risk is shifting east of us, water vapor imagery shows we have one more shortwave coming across SoDak that we'll have to contend. Most CAMs show this wave pushing another area of scattered showers into western MN late this morning, with that activity working across the rest of central and southern MN during the afternoon. By then, the main cold front will be across eastern Iowa into southern WI, so this activity will be elevated, with more limited instability in turn keeping the severe risk for the MPX area very low. This activity will also be progressive, so the heavy rain threat will be low as well, but with how wet we've been, the bar is set pretty low for seeing flash flood concerns across south central Minnesota. However, with the primary warm front and eventual surface low remaining across Iowa, we don't look to have the redevelopment of heavy rain like we've seen the past couple of days, so for now we look to be transitioning to the river flood phase of this event.

Sunday looks to finally be a drier day and an opportunity to tackle the jungle that has likely become your yard, but there is a threat for some scattered afternoon showers/storms northeast of I-94 as a shortwave in northwest flow tracks from northeast MN to northern lower Michigan. Instability will be under 500 j/kg, so the severe risk Sunday looks low as well.

Monday and Tuesday look to be the warmest days of the week as warm air gets drawn north in response to a shortwave moving across southern Canada. The cold front with this trough looks to come through the MPX area Monday night, with that timing looking to help hold highs both days in the 80s. The bigger issue is that front will bring us our next chance of thunderstorms. This will be one of those cases where forcing will be strongest north, but we'll have the better instability. Looking at the deterministic models, QPF from them all show a pretty classic MCS signal for Monday evening as storms develop in the Red River Valley and track southeast through the evening into the better instability in southern MN. Given the warmth on Monday, along with the moist airmass in place, we're seeing a favorable thermodynamic environment develop with mlCAPE values possibly exceeding 3000 j/kg Monday afternoon ahead of what would come down from the northwest. There's still a good deal of uncertainty with exactly when/where storms would develop and then track through the evening, but the environment we'll have in place will definitely support a severe risk if we can drop some updrafts into it.

Tuesday is trending dry, with the cold front looking to be far enough south/east of the MPX area to have the next round of storms fire south of our area, though it won't take much of a slowing to see storms again Tuesday afternoon in south central MN up into western WI. After that, high pressure comes in and we get a breather Wednesday and Wednesday night.

For Thursday afternoon through Friday night, it's looking unsettled once again as a shortwave moves across the international border from the northern Rockies over to Lake Superior. These falling heights back over Montana on Thursday will result in another resurgence in the LLJ across the Dakotas. This LLJ right now looks to come across the MPX area Thursday night, with our best chances for storms coming Thursday night, then Friday afternoon over eastern MN and western WI along the advancing cold front. This looks to be another system that will support both the chance for severe weather and excessive rainfall.

It's then trending drier for the following weekend, but ensembles are already showing the next active stretch of active weather loading up for the start of July.

The heavy rain threat has ended, but we'll remain in a region favorable for IFR conditions to the north of the warm front and surface low through the day. Outside of EAU, it will be dry through the morning, but shra/tsra will return this afternoon as the wave currently over SoDak moves into MN. Followed HRRR timing for bringing in that next round of precip potential in the afternoon. There's low confidence in how the cigs/vis will evolve overnight. If we clear the stratus out, there will be a threat for fog development over western MN. RAP soundings hold the low level moisture in through tonight, so played tonight on the pessimistic side.

KMSP...The HRRR has been pretty persistent with bringing yet another round of showers in late this afternoon, so felt confident enough to go with the prevail shra. For TS, our instability looks limited, so that's why a TS mention is just in a prob30. Confidence is low in how long stratus will hang around Saturday night/Sunday morning, but wost case scenario is it will take until 15z Sunday to get rid of it.

/OUTLOOK FOR KMSP/ SUN...VFR. Wind NW 10-15 kts.
MON...VFR. Chc -TSRA/MVFR late. Wind SSE 10-15 kts.
TUE...VFR. Wind NW 10-20 kts.

Despite a lack of confidence in the location of highest QPF for tonight, we'll see enough rain in areas already having issues from last night's and this morning's rain to warrant an areal flood warning in south central MN. This warning will need to be watched for extension to the south depending on how the precip sets up along I-90, could also go through the night. River forecasts are mainly on track this afternoon, paying particular attention to the Cannon where training has occurred today, along with the mid/lower Minnesota where lots of inflow coming from the tribs south of Mankato.
