Ready or not, more rain is headed to Minnesota on Wednesday according to the National Weather Service. 

This after heavy rain has caused flash flooding in the Twin Cities on both Monday and Tuesday afternoon.

The Flash Flood Watch issued by the National Weather Service for tonight for areas from the Twin Cities, south and east of a line from Mankato, to Blue Earth in Minnesota, and areas south of New Richmond to Elk Mound in Wisconsin. It follows what's already been a hot, humid, and wet weak for Minnesota. 

The National Weather Services says the combination of deep moisture, high rainfall rates, and the antecedent conditions, will lead to rapid runoff which could lead to flash flooding, especially in flood prone areas.
