Strong storms are expected to fire up along a trough of low pressure Thursday afternoon. This area of low pressure extends from the Dakotas into Kansas and will be the focus of the storm threat Thursday afternoon and evening.
Storms that form along this boundary have the chance to become strong, even severe. A marginal and slight risk for severe weather is anticipated for the highlighted areas with hail and winds being most likely.
There could even be a few isolated tornadoes, particularly for South Dakota and Kansas. Stay weather aware.
This low pressure system continues to push east heading into Friday and our severe storm risk follows it.
Friday's severe weather threats will be greatest over southern Minnesota, southwest Wisconsin, eastern Iowa and Northern Missouri.
