Starting To Fire. The 8 pm visible satellite loop shows strong/severe storms popping along a weak frontal boundary draped over northern MInnesota. More storms are pushing east out of the Dakotas - the chance of T-storms increases as the night goes on, the best chance of severe storms (hail and gusty winds) north/west of MSP.


Greatest Severe Storm Potential. With tropical levels of moisture, a deep layer of water vapor (nearly 2" of precipitatable water in the 12z MSP and INL soundings) conditions are ripe for not only severe storms, but flash flooding, especially north of the boundary stretching from Wadena to Brainerd to Sandstone and Spooner, WI. A watch may be issued by SPC.


Slight Severe Risk. SPC has much of central and northern MInnesota and Wisconsin in a "slight risk", spilling over into much of MOnday as well.
