Residents in southern Minnesota were told there was a slight possibility for severe weather Saturday night, but the system petered out as it hit the western edge of the state.
The National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center initially said there's a slight risk of severe storms rolling from South Dakota, through Minnesota, and into Wisconsin.
But a severe thunderstorm watch issued around 6 p.m. that was supposed to last until midnight was canceled at about 9 p.m., the Twin Cities' National Weather Service office tweeted.
As of that time, there were no watches or warnings in the entire state of Minnesota. (Click here to see the map.)
The NWS' Twin Cities office tweeted around 7:30 p.m. that the severe threat was "rapidly diminishing."
Storms in northeast MN
There is a chance of severe storms in the state however – it's just in the opposite corner.
A storm is expected to move from Manitoba southeast into northeast Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin.
The Storm Prediction Center noted at 8:53 p.m. there could be scattered thunderstorms, with a limited chance for hail and the possibility of a strong gust "or two."
A severe thunderstorm watch being issued is "unlikely," however, the center says.
