Share story

Round 3 anyone?

The atmosphere over Minnesota remains primed for possible severe weather and flash flooding Wednesday night. There is a slight risk for severe weather in northern and southern Minnesota. 

The latest outlook from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Storm Prediction Center puts the Twin Cities in the marginal risk zone between areas of slight risk to the north and south.

Most forecast models favor an eruption of storms late Wednesday afternoon in southern Minnesota. Strong to severe storms could move into the Twin Cities area Wednesday evening. 

Again, they look likely to pack heavy rainfall. But all modes of severe weather (wind, hail, tornadoes and flooding) are possible across southern Minnesota.

The Twin Cities National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch until 7 a.m. Thursday. The watch includes the Twin Cities and much of southern Minnesota.

Stay tuned for possible warnings late.
