ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – Last week was Severe Weather Awareness week and Minnesota and now this week we are tracking a chance of strong to severe thunderstorms Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning.
Here’s what you need to know:
The severe weather outlook for northern Iowa is a threat level 3 out of 5 (for areas in red) Tuesday evening. Right now, this appears to be the greatest threat of strong winds and tornadoes. Thunderstorms will develop west of I-35 around 5-8 p.m. Tuesday. They’ll race to the east-northeast as a long line of storms develops along a frontal boundary after 8 p.m. Storms should approach Hwy-52 after 9 p.m. The threat level for most of SE Minnesota is a level 2 out of 5 with the main threats of strong winds and large hail. Isolated tornadoes will still be possible in areas in orange as this line moves out of our area.
