MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Heading to a Memorial Day ceremony on Monday? Don’t forget to bring an umbrella or check the forecast for severe weather.

Tornado warnings were issued for southeastern Minnesota until 2:30 p.m. but have since expired.

The National Weather Service also said funnel clouds are possible in southern Minnesota.

According to CBS-affiliate KIMT, a possible tornado was filmed touching the ground Monday afternoon in Floyd County in Iowa near the Minnesota border.



Rain is expected to fall in southern and central Minnesota throughout the day, with heavy downpours at times and possible isolated thunderstorms.

The National Weather Service has issued a flood watch for a number of counties in southern Minnesota, from the south metro to the Iowa border.

Two to three inches of rain could fall in these areas, leading to rising rivers and streams. The flood watch is slated to last until Tuesday morning.

For those with tickets to the Twins game Monday night, know that the rain should start to move out of the state just before the game starts at Target Field.

Looking ahead, Tuesday is expected to be cloudy but mostly dry, and rain looks to return on Wednesday.
