Strong thunderstorms today?

There appears to be a marginal set up today for strong to severe thunderstorms along a narrow corridor across central Minnesota.  Any storms that do pop, are working in a favorable environment of 30 to 40 knot winds to intensify.  Large hail and strong winds are the primary threats. I really don’t see much tornado potential out of this.  Storm coverage is expected to be isolated.


The high resolution WRF-NMM forecast model, which was pretty darn good at handling the storm activity yesterday, although I failed to buy into what it was displaying, is showing some stronger activity near the Twin Cities metro by the evening hours.


Anyone with outdoor plans might want to keep an eye to the sky today for changing weather conditions!
