Severe weather is expected in the Upper Midwest on Monday.

A cold front should set off showers and thunderstorms from Nebraska to Wisconsin, with harsher storms most likely striking cities including Omaha, Des Moines and Minneapolis. Some areas could see large hail and brief tornadoes. Flash flooding is a possibility.

After this frontal system settles south by midweek, another system is ready to sneak in behind it and deliver more heavy rain to eastern Kansas and western Missouri, parts of which were saturated last week with more than 10 inches.
