We were dancing Monday in our Weather MN blog that Mother Nature and the State of Minnesota had agreed a nice three-day weather contract. Well, the reason is that a four-day contract is not there as stricter storms are predicted for parts of Minnesota on Thursday.
The Storm Prediction Center has placed small parts of northern and western Minnesota at little risk due to severe storms in its Day 3 view, making them already confident in developing strong storms.
Their current idea is that a storm line will develop late Thursday and will be able to produce large winds and large stones.
While it is still too early to put a lot of confidence in any of the computer models, the 13KM NAM model (GIF may not be loaded in every browser) is coming on storm possibilities diving southeast through Minnesota Thursday night. late to Friday morning.
Again, there is still no worry as it is still three days away. It is also good that the current forecast storms are exhausted after dark, which may limit some of the severe potential.
The data will certainly change over the next 72 hours, and we will keep the Weather MN blog up to date as the forecast changes and becomes more defined.
According to the National Weather Service in the Twin Cities, a similar storm system could move through parts of Minnesota again over the weekend. Otherwise, expect normal July weather with sunlight and hards in the 80s.
