Get ready for another round of severe storms

Storms are expected across much of Minnesota, including the Twin Cities.

It could be another noisy and windy day or night for parts of Minnesota as another round of severe storms is forecast to blow through. 

According to the Storm Prediction Center (SPC), storms are expected to develop in North Dakota and move southeast through Minnesota. Large hail and damaging winds will be the main threats, although tornadoes will be possible mainly in northeast North Dakota, the SPC says. 

Tim Purington, a storm chaser who took GoMN on a wild ride last week, tells GoMN that storms should push through the Twin Cities sometime in the evening or later. It all depends on when storms initially get going to the northwest. 

The Twin Cities branch of the National Weather Service (NWS) has less confidence now than it did earlier in the day that storms will be severe by the time they reach the metro. 

Here are maps showing areas with the best chance to experience damaging winds and hail. 

Another area of robust thunderstorm activity is expected south of the I-90 corridor in southern Minnesota and Iowa. According to the La Crosse, Wisconsin, branch of the National Weather Service, those storms have the potential to produce large hail, damaging winds, isolated tornadoes and heavy rain. 

Timing for storms in that area is forecast for 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.

There's also an elevated risk of flooding in the areas shaded in red in the map below.
