ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- After a soggy night for a large portion of the area last night, we're looking at more rain and thunderstorm chances for much of the area through the next couple of the days as our weather pattern remains fairly active.
A slow moving storm system will produce a few more rounds of shower activity in the next few days as it also works to draw in some warm and humid air to fuel those rain chances and make things feel a bit uncomfortable through the midweek.
After occasional morning showers and thunderstorms in the northeastern half of the viewing area, we'll have brighter, drier weather this afternoon with just a slight chance for some thunderstorms later in the day and this evening and then a slightly better chance tonight.
Another round of thunderstorms will be possible later tomorrow as a potent cold front pushes into the region.
Ahead of that front, high temperatures tomorrow will be in the low to mid 90s with heat indices close to 100, possibly higher than that in northern Iowa.
Behind that front, a disturbance will kick off isolated thunderstorms Thursday with a stray shower or two possible Friday as high temperatures slide down into the upper 70s and low 80s for much of the area.
Saturday will be bright and pleasant with a few light showers again possible on Sunday.
