Finding the dry hours

There will be many dry hours this weekend. But we'll also be dodging scattered showers across Minnesota. Rainfall looks spotty and intermittent. The most likely timing favors this evening and late Saturday through Saturday evening. NOAA's NAM model paints the picture this weekend.

Marginal severe risk

There is a fairly low (marginal) severe weather risk Friday evening. Severe weather is not likely,  just enough instability to keep one eye on the radar.

Saturday severe risk

Saturday's storms could get feisty across southwest Minnesota. The highest severe risk runs along the Iowa border. A severe outbreak looks likely in the central plains.
