Rain Friday Morning, Severe Weather Threat Later
The good news is that the rodeo at the Rice County Fair is happening wet or dry. Those cowboys want to try to earn their prize money and won't mind getting dirty to do it.
The National Weather Service says there is an enhanced risk of severe thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. Scattered thunderstorms will develop this morning, becoming more numerous this evening with a cold front. Large hail and damaging winds are the main threats, but a couple of tornadoes are also possible.
Locally heavy rainfall is likely, which could lead to flash flooding. There is a slight risk of excessive rainfall across east-central Minnesota and west-central Wisconsin.
Looking ahead Saturday through Thursday, multiple rounds of thunderstorms with some severe weather and heavy rainfall are possible from Tuesday afternoon through Thursday.
