Severe Storm Watch. SPC has issued a watch for most of central and east central Minnesota and a big chunk of western Wisconsin until 6 am. There's a good chance the cells over western and central MN will congeal into an MCS, a swirl of strong to severe storms capable of torrential rains, 50-60 mph gusts and frequent lightning overnight. I could see some minor flooding as the storms sweep thru, probably making for a slower Friday morning commute.
