Large Hail & Damaging Winds Possible Today
The National Weather Service says there's a marginal risk of severe weather across Central Minnesota this afternoon and evening -- meaning spotty severe thunderstorms are possible across the area today.
The greatest likelihood of severe weather is south of a line from Morris to Red Wing. Large hail, damaging winds, and heavy rain will be the greatest threats later today, but a tornado or two are still possible.
The most likely time frame for severe weather is during the afternoon and evening. There is a small chance the storms could develop as soon as the late morning, but the afternoon/evening time frame is most likely.
Large hail, damaging winds, and heavy rainfall are most likely in the Marginal Risk (yellow) area.
