SEVERE WEATHER -- Be sky aware over the next couple of days. Strong storms are expected across Central Minnesota this afternoon and evening -- maybe large hail and damaging winds. By Thursday, the risk for severe stuff moves more into Wisconsin -- again large hail and damaging winds, but maybe tornadoes, too. Stay tuned.
MILLE LACS FISHING -- The DNR is closing the walleye season on Lake Mille Lacs. Walleye fishing has been under catch-and-release all season. But starting Friday night, you won't be able to fish for walleyes AT ALL, until July 28th. The DNR says the moratorium is to protect fish from "hook mortality" in the warmer water and high fishing pressure.
