There’s an enhanced risk of severe weather in parts of Minnesota from Thursday afternoon through Friday night.
On the latest episode of the Way Over Our Heads podcast, climatologist Kenny Blumenfeld and Jim du Bois discuss the arrival of a potent storm system that may bring damaging winds, hail and heavy rains to northwestern Minnesota Thursday night.
On Friday, the threat expands to the south and east, including the Twin Cities, bringing with it a better chance for tornadoes and wind-driven hail.
“We’re going into a seasonal transition, like it or not, and the kind of doldrums of summer are going to be exchanging for the more active and faster moving air patterns that you get in the fall”, says Blumenfeld.
After the storms pass, we’ll get a taste of fall for the next several days with low temperatures in northern Minnesota falling into the 40s.
Also in this episode, Blumenfeld looks back on this past weekend’s storms that struck the Twin Cities late Sunday night into the early morning hours on Monday.
“They were all prolific lightning and thunder producers,” said Blumenfeld.
