PDS Tornado Watch Issued Until 10 pm

The National Weather Service has issued a tornado watch for Marion County until 9 p.m. Isolated tornadoes are possible, and hail and heavy rainfall capable of producing flooding also are possible.

It hardly feels like spring - what with a winter storm in the offing for the weekend - but the National Weather Service wants folks to think about tornadoes.

A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for Friday afternoon and Saturday for much of central and southern Minnesota and west central Wisconsin. All modes of severe weather will be possible, including the threat of potentially strong and long track tornadoes. In addition to the heavy snow, strong winds gusting between 40 to 50 miles per hour will bring the possibility of blizzard conditions to west central Minnesota.

As the day cools further into the evening, there is a chance of a mix of rain and snow and possibly graupel, also known as soft hail, on Tuesday.

The same officials say Syria has continued to produce or procure chlorine, which also has industrial and agricultural uses. Event if Trump did, al-Atrash added, it could not disrupt the rapport among Syrian people, army and government.

The area will experience showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 2 p.m.

The possibility of tornadoes or hail are listed as low, but with the enhanced risk, isolated tornadoes can not be ruled out.

The risky weather threat should end "prior to daybreak" on Saturday as the cold front is expected to clear the area of storms, according to forecasters. The risk for tornadoes is higher southwest of Richmond.

"Just north of you, from Redwood Falls to the Twin Cities, we're forecasting 8 to 16 inches". The main line of storms is expected to cross the Mississippi River around 3 a.m. and continue to slowly move east through Saturday morning.
