A warm Wednesday will transition into another warm day Thursday, with a chance for storms – some possibly severe – impacting parts of southern Minnesota, possibly after dark depending on where you live (early the further west you are). 

According to the Storm Prediction Center (SPC), storms will develop in South Dakota and move east-southeast through the day and into the overnight hours, possibly featuring multiple clusters of storms that reach southern Minnesota. 


Tom Novak of Novak Weather is monitoring the situation, and he's also got his eye on an active pattern developing into what could be spark severe weather and flooding rains early next week. 

"I'm very concerned about a heavy rain effect developing over the Midwest and Upper Midwest as we get into Tuesday of next week, and we also could experience some severe weather as we head into Monday and Tuesday next week," said Novak.

"It's a long ways away but the computer model guidance has been fairly consistent with showing this weather pattern early next week." 

We'll have more weather coverage with updates on the severe chances on Thursday.
