If you had a sleepless night in Minnesota on Sunday you were not alone -- a lightning storm that is usually fairly fleeting lasted for several hours, and we're in for some more severe weather today.

We can look forward to widespread showers and storms across the state today, including areas of severe weather and heavy rain. The entire state is under the severe weather risk, with damaging winds being the primary threat, but some large hail is also likely along with isolated tornadoes. Heavy rain and localized flooding remain a concern, and it looks like the heaviest rain will target northern Minnesota.

So for today's 9:30 Coffee Break, what songs do you want to hear that mention stormy, severe weather?
