Sogn Valley SKYWARN

Sogn Valley SKYWARN, Inc. works in association and is coordinated by the local office of the National Weather Service in Chanhassen, Minnesota. We are a team of volunteer storm spotters who are trained to support the NWS and our local communities during times of severe weather. Our observations and subsequent reports provide critical data for the early detection of weather events capable of threatening life and/or property.

NOON UPDATE: The overall threat of severe weather has diminished across much of our area, but a few strong to severe storms are still possible heading into this evening. The main threat will be large hail. A couple tornadoes are also possible mainly north of I-94. #mnwx #wiwx SVSkywarn photo
There is an increasing potential for severe weather across Central and Southern MN Saturday afternoon. Although the setup appears conditional, storms that materialize near the warm front could produce large hail, damaging wind gusts, and an isolated tornado. #mnwx #wiwx SVSkywarn photo
We expect a pretty stormy and rainy overnight...and rain totals could reach 3-4" in parts of NE IA and SE MN. The drier soils and low river levels will allow for it, but a localized flooding risk exists (20%). The graphic shows the approximate axis of heaviest rains. SVSkywarn photo
Scattered thunderstorms are expected today and tomorrow with severe possible. Today's highest risk area will be from south central MN into western WI. Tomorrow's highest risk area will be larger covering much of MN including the entire Twin Cities metro. #mnwx #wiwx SVSkywarn photo
A special weather statement has been issued for Cannon Falls MN, Dennison MN and Stanton MN until 1:45 PM CDT SVSkywarn photo
The Storm Prediction Center has put the probability of needing a watch at 40% for storms developing in southern MN now. Biggest limiting factor is the strongest wind shear is displaced south of where the storms are, so we may struggle to get much organization to storms. #mnwx
