The Rain Today Could Be Severe – We May Even See a Tornado
Before you all go getting misty over the 60 degrees and rain today, the rain may not stay, "Oh, nice...spring rain" for long. Here's the deal-e-o...
It seems hard to believe we're just out of a huge and heavy snowstorm, but there's no arguing with Mother Nature. If she wants it to be freezing and snowy one day, then torrential rain the next, that's what she gets.
The National Weather Service says we may even see a tornado!
A strong cold front will produce a line of showers and storms as it moves east across the area between 5 PM and 11 PM. Some of these storms could potentially produce damaging winds.
The highest threat will across southeast Minnesota and much of Iowa.
In addition to the wind threat, there may be isolated tornadoes and hail up to 1 inch in diameter. Behind the cold front, it will remain very windy into Tuesday. Sustained winds will range from 25 to 35 mph with wind gust of 35 to 55 mph.
