7 Day Forecast 7 Day Forecast

Severe storms are the main concern for your Thursday afternoon and evening forecast. Mostly central and southern Minnesota have the risk for severe weather today, with the greatest chance across southeastern Minnesota.. INCLUDING the Twin Cities, and areas SE of a line from the Twin Cities to New Ulm. Damaging winds, small hail, downpours and the potential for tornadoes are all concerns. By mid-afternoon we'll contend with a round of storms in the Twin Cities. While downpours are possible, and a few strong storms, the greatest risk for severe storms will fall between 5-9PM. After the cold front associated with today's storm system tracks eastward tonight, we just see a few lingering spotty showers past 10PM, with an isolated sprinkle tomorrow morning. Friday's a cooler forecast, with partly cloudy skies and highs around 63°. Meteorologist Wren Clair
