Twin Cities under slight risk for severe storms Tuesday

Damaging winds and tornadoes are the main threats.
Publish date:

Severe weather again poses a threat in parts of Minnesota and Wisconsin on Tuesday afternoon, and the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has upgraded the risk to "slight" (level 2 of 5 on the severe scale) in the Twin Cities, Rochester and far eastern parts of Minnesota into western Wisconsin. 

Storms are expected to redevelop Tuesday afternoon. 

"The main threats possible are damaging winds and tornadoes," said the Twin Cities office of the National Weather Service (NWS). 


The HRRR computer model guidance shows rain clearing out this morning with redevelopment by early afternoon, with most of the storm activity out of Minnesota before dark. 


The NAM NEST computer model guidance has a much less aggressive future radar simulation, as seen here. 


We'll keep you posted with any watches or warnings that develop.
