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.
