... Very heavy rain and localized minor flooding expected...

Scott...

Locations impacted include...
Minneapolis, Hutchinson, Bloomington, Plymouth, Eden Prairie,
Burnsville, Lakeville, Minnetonka, Edina, St. Louis Park, Shakopee

across flooded roads. Find alternate routes. It takes only a few
inches of swiftly flowing water to carry vehicles away.
