The National Weather Service says the risk of severe weather across parts of Central Minnesota continues tonight.

Thunderstorm chances increase this evening into the overnight. Heavy rainfall and flash flooding will be possible with any storms tonight. Damaging winds, large hail, and a tornado will all be possible as well.

While there is a marginal risk of severe weather across Central Minnesota, the greatest threat will be across Southern Minnesota, into Southern Wisconsin.

As it looks now, the storms associated with the severe weather threat are not expected to reach the Saint Cloud area until after midnight tonight.

Following tonight's storms, a major cool down will make things feel a whole lot like fall beginning this weekend.
