People with outdoor plans in the midwestern United States will need to keep a close eye to the sky as another round of thunderstorms rolls in at the end of the weekend.
A cluster of rain and thunderstorms that spread through the northern Plains on Saturday night will progress eastward through Minnesota, Wisconsin and a portion of Iowa, Nebraska and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan on Sunday.
Residents with outdoor plans in Minneapolis; Eau Claire, Wisconsin; Sioux City and Mason City, Iowa; Sioux Falls, South Dakota; and Omaha, Nebraska, should be ready to take cover indoors at the first rumble of thunder.
Thunderstorms with frequent lightning strikes and downpours will be common in the area at risk.
However, some of the strongest storms can bring hail and damaging wind gusts. Gusts could reach an AccuWeather Local StormMax™ of 70 mph.
The downpours can lead to slowdowns and times of reduced visibility on interstates 29, 35, 80, 90 and 94.
Motorists are reminded to lower speeds on the highway in a downpour to reduce the risk of hydroplaning.
Enough rain to trigger flash flooding is possible in some of the storms.
