A strong storm system will spin through the region on Friday and bring with it the potential for all forms of severe weather, including damaging winds, large hail and tornadoes.
The full extent of the severe weather won't be known until Friday, namely being dependent on how long overnight storms in Nebraska and South Dakota hold together into Friday morning. The sooner the storms clear out, the better the chances for severe weather will be.
According to the Storm Prediction Center, storms will likely reform at some point Friday afternoon "from southeastern North Dakota southward to eastern Nebraska, and then will spread into western portions of Minnesota/Iowa with time."
For now, there is a slight risk for severe storms across most of Minnesota, including the Twin Cities, though the Storm Prediction Center says "an upgrade may be required in later outlooks.
Here's what the NWS Twin Cities says: "Thunderstorms will develop Friday afternoon across the Dakotas and western Minnesota, and push eastward into eastern Minnesota and western Wisconsin by late Friday evening."
Storms will likely eventually form a line and pick up speed – up to 50 mph – as they move across the state, according to the weather service.
