An unseasonably moist air mass will be feeding into these storms, which will enhance rainfall amounts. The weather service is predicting from 1½ to 2½ inches of rain could fall across the watch area, with locally higher amounts possible.

The 15-county watch area includes the counties of Kandiyohi, McLeod, Meeker and Renville.
