Possible severe thunderstorms this afternoon and evening

Scattered afternoon and evening storms are likely across a good chunk of eastern Minnesota and western Wisconsin Sunday. A cold front will interact with the added warmth and moisture building over the weekend and spark storms along and east of the I-35 corridor.

Just remember to use common sense while outdoors… if the skies begin to darken or you see lightning in the distance, head indoors, stay away from windows, and seek more information on Fox9 or the Fox9 Weather App.

These storms will press pretty quickly to the southeast, with much of the area already clearing out by 10pm. Stay sky aware!
