Severe weather possible Thursday, Friday
Parts of Minnesota have the potential for severe weather Thursday.
Much of central Minnesota has a slight risk of severe thunderstorms, while other areas have a marginal risk of severe weather.
The Twin Cities metro area is part of the marginal risk, as well as areas to the west, such as Redwood Falls and Hutchinson.
Meanwhile, areas to the north and west in a line from Milbank to Willmar, Buffalo and Forest Lake stretching north to Moose Lake, Crosslake and Fergus Falls are in a slight risk. That risk extends to the border of Minnesota with North and South Dakota.
A stretch of northwest Wisconsin is also listed under a marginal risk.
