NOTES:
The Storm Prediction Center says there is a SLIGHT RISK of severe thunderstorms for Wednesday and Wednesday night across southwestern Minnesota, and the southwestern two-thirds of Iowa, and a MARGINAL RISK of severe thunderstorms for the rest of the southern two-thirds of Minnesota, the rest of Iowa, all but far eastern Illinois, and the southwestern half of Wisconsin (west of a Superior to Beaver Dam to Lake Geneva line). A warm and humid air mass will continue to cover much of the Midwest lasting through Memorial Day. Scattered thunderstorms are likely, with an isolated strong to severe thunderstorm possible. Hail and high winds would be the main threats. Higher chances for severe thunderstorms should remain in Iowa.

There is a SLIGHT RISK of severe thunderstorms for Thursday and Thursday night for extreme southern Minnesota and most of Iowa (except for the far eastern sections), and a MARGINAL RISK of severe thunderstorms for the rest of the southern third of Minnesota, the rest of Iowa, the northwestern two-thirds of Illinois, and the southern two-thirds of Wisconsin (south of a Minneapolis to Wausau to Marinette, MI line). Warm and humid air will continue across the Midwest on Thursday. Isolated severe thunderstorms are possible from southern Minnesota through much of Wisconsin into northern Illinois, with hail and high winds being the main threats. More widespread severe thunderstorm activity is expected in Iowa, where more instability and wind shear may lead to the threat for a few tornadoes.

It is possible there will be a daily threat for at least isolated severe thunderstorms into Friday and perhaps Saturday as well. The actual threat may be refined more when it becomes apparent where the best chance of thunderstorm development will be on a given day.
