Showers and Thunderstorms will continue to track further into eastern Minnesota this evening. Another chance will pass through this evening, more along and north of HWY 2 though. Otherwise, cool night tonight with clouds lingering. Forecast remains on track.

Issued at 225 PM CDT Tue Jun 18 2024

One severe thunderstorm has pulsed up over Hubbard County Minnesota right now, moving northeast at about 40 mph. There is a surface low just east of Watertown South Dakota, along the South Dakota/Minnesota border, with a warm front extending out to the east-northeast. Based solely on the wind field, this warm front is now south of an Elbow Lake to Perham to Park Rapids line. For the rest of the FA, winds have turned to the north with lower temperatures (mainly upper 50s) and lower dewpoints (mainly mid 50s). There has been some patchy fog around, but for the most part it is back above 2 to 3 miles.

Severe risk through 5 pm

The severe thunderstorm risk should be fairly short over our southeast FA, generally ending by 4 to 5 pm, as the surface front mentioned above continues to push south and east. However, at 2 pm, there was a sharp thermal gradient from west central into southwest Minnesota. MLCAPE values ranged from 1000 J/kg across our southeast FA to over 2500 J/kg over southwest Minnesota. Decent 850mb winds continued to feed into the area near this surface boundary, with precipitable water values around 1.8 inches. For these reasons, SPC has issued a Tornado Watch that includes Wadena, Hubbard, Becker, Otter Tail, and Grant counties until 8 pm, but as mentioned, the threat should end much sooner for this FA.

With the surface low and warm front, there is the potential for tornadoes. Based off the SPC meso page, the various tornado parameters are all centered across either southwest Minnesota or eastward into northwest Wisconsin. Just the fringes of our southeast Minnesota FA lie on the weaker edge of these gradients. So far, not seeing much development in the areas to the south of this FA, possibly due to the warm 700mb temperatures over them yet. The HRRR and other CAMs continue to support the idea of storms ending in this FA by 4 to 5 pm, as they progress in the Duluth FA, while other storms develop south of this FA.

Thursday through early Saturday
With a 500mb high sitting over the southeast United States, it appears the FA will stay in southwest flow. Several waves may eject out in the Northern Plains, possibly showing a better potential along the North and South Dakota border into adjacent areas of west central Minnesota. This area may not have been hit as hard with the rainfall that ended this morning, but it does seem that most areas have been wet. Will therefore have to keep an eye on this system for additional heavy rain and the potential of added flooding threats.

Issued at 1030 PM CDT Tue Jun 18 2024

Low clouds make this period tricky. TSRA will continue to push to the east away from our TAF sites. Low clouds will linger into the morning hours of Wednesday for MN TAF sites, but clear quicker in ND TAF sites to MVFR or VFR levels. Winds will shift into tomorrow as a surface feature passes over, becoming more variable then southeasterly at 5 - 10 knots.
