Another round of severe storms for Minnesota on Friday

The main threats will be large hail and damaging winds.
Publish date:

A stormy Friday is likely across southern Minnesota. 

there is an increasing likelihood that leftover storms from overnight Thursday will continue across southern Minnesota on Friday morning. 

Some of those storms could produce hail and gusty winds before dissipating before noon. 

Stormy conditions are then expected to redevelop in the mid-afternoon hours, and the Storm Prediction Center's (SPC) current thinking – which will undoubtedly shift slightly over the next 24 hours – is that storms will begin in western Minnesota/northeast South Dakota.

Large hail, potentially significant hail, will be possible in the first couple hours before a line of storms forms and marches across the state. 

The SPC has the southern half of Minnesota under a slight risk for severe storms on Friday, as depicted in the map below.
