Heavy rain showers and thunderstorms will occur across the northland this afternoon. Rainfall amounts between 1-3" are possible, therefore the National Weather Serves has issued a FLOOD WATCH until Friday morning. The largest threat for severe weather will be in north and central Wisconsin and far east Minnesota. A large surface low in addition to strong winds aloft will create an unstable atmosphere capable of producing strong winds between 45-55mph, hail, and a possibly a tornado. Large squall lines of thunderstorms may form, capable of producing these sever events. Stay tuned for more details.
