Accumulating Snow North - PM Tornado Risk South/East of Twin Cities
NOAA's Storm Prediction Center has a slight risk of severe storms for much of southeastern Minnesota, including a 5% tornado risk - unusual but not unprecedented for early March. There may be severe/tornado watches issued later today, so be alert for that. On the cold side of the storm a stripe of plowable accumulation is still expected for parts of central and northeastern Minnesota

Snowfall Potential. The 06z run of ECMWF (the European model) still shows a semar of 2-5" from near Alexandria and Brainerd to Duluth and the North Shore. Accumulating snow and a slight tornado risk in the same state at the same time. Only in Minnesota.
