Strong, Even Severe Thunderstorms Expected Today

National Weather Service, Chanhassen

Central Minnesota could see some heavy weather today and tonight.

Warm, humid conditions are expected to come together over the region to create strong to severe thunderstorms and torrential rain.

A Flash Flood Watch is already posted through lunchtime Wednesday.  3-6″ of rain is possible in some areas.  And that’s expected to create flash flooding in some areas.

The National Weather Services says:

Periods of rain and thunderstorms, especially along and north of the I-94 corridor, are expected today as a warm front gradually lifts north over southern and central Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Some of the storms may produce heavy rain with rainfall rates exceeding 1 inch per hour. A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through Wednesday for much of southern and central Minnesota into western Wisconsin. In addition, late this afternoon through this evening, there is a slight risk of severe thunderstorms with large hail and damaging winds as the primary hazards. The warm and humid environment will be conducive for heavy rain through Wednesday, when a cold front will push through the region, bringing in a brief bout of cooler and drier air for late Wednesday into Thursday. Another frontal system will arrive for Friday through Saturday that will bring additional rounds of showers and thunderstorms.

Keep tuned to WJON Radio for the latest watches and warnings as they happen today and tonight.
