Scattered severe storms are expected this afternoon and especially this evening over much of Iowa, central and southern Minnesota, western Wisconsin, and eastern Nebraska. Storms will develop across central/southern Minnesota as early as late afternoon.
Storms initially across Minnesota will pose a large hail, and possibly a low end tornado threat initially as storms remain isolated. They will quickly grow upscale and will form into a line along the warm front, which will be oriented from west to east along the Iowa/Minnesota border. This line of storms will track through the state overnight Wednesday. Once storms merge, the threat will transition to a damaging wind and hail threat. Heavy rain is also expected with these storms. An additional one to three inches will be possible with locally higher amounts where storms track over the same areas.
