Another Round. NWS Doppler radar at 6:05 PM shows a squall line of severe storms over the central Dakotas with a Tornado Watch for much of the central and western Dakotas. Those storms are forecast to rumble into Minnesota later tonight, possibly forming an MCS or meso-convective system, capable of frequent lightning and torrential rains. Some 2-4"+ rainfall amounts can't be ruled out late tonight.

Future Radar: 2 AM Thursday. NOAA's HRRR model shows heavy showers and T-storms pushing into much of Minnesota late tonight; once again the heaviest rains capable of the worst flooding are likely to pass south of the Twin Cities.
