After a round of thunderstorms moved across the Northland early this morning, additional strong storms are possible in the region this afternoon - with some flooding possible.

The National Weather Service reports that storms are forecast to redevelop ahead of a cold front this afternoon and evening, with severe weather possible. The main threats from any severe storms will be damaging winds, large hail and very heavy rain, along with a slight chance for tornadoes. 

Any rain that falls will come on top of heavy rain in recent days, increasing the risk for flooding. Rainfall totals from overnight included 4.45 inches near Floodwood; 3.15 inches near Brimson; 2.61 inches at Chisholm; 1.72 inches at the Duluth airport and 1.14 inches at the Superior airport.

Highs are forecast to reach the 80s today with very humid conditions. In the wake of tonight's storms, cooler and drier conditions are forecast for Labor Day. Highs are forecast to reach the 70s on Monday under sunny skies.
