Scattered severe storms develop this afternoon and evening. Damaging winds are the main threats, a few tornadoes are possible, as well as large hail. The risk for severe weather is now mainly through midnight. While at first scattered, these storms could organize into a complex with gust of 75 mph, tracking southeastward, especially through southeastern Minnesota into Wisconsin.

Where we end up with severe storms, we will also see heavy rainfall, with totals up to 3″ of rain. Because of this a Flood Watch is in place for the metro tonight. Where we don’t see storms, we won’t have heavy rain. Storms won’t be widespread, but everyone has a chance for severe storms tonight, so please stay up to speed with the forecast.
