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.

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
This is round 1 of 2 severe threats today. Wind, hail, and lightning are the main hazards.

Current ETA for the Metro area is around 11AM.

Keep an eye on the weather today, particularly if you plan to spend time outdoors.
