THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHEAST MINNESOTA AND
NORTHWEST WISCONSIN.

.DAY ONE...TONIGHT

THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED TO MOVE INTO FAR SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF THE
FORECAST AREA...PRIMARILY AREAS ALONG AND NEAR AND SOUTH OF U.S.
HIGHWAY 2...AFTER MIDNIGHT TONIGHT.  ANY THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED
TO REMAIN BELOW SEVERE LEVELS...BUT COULD PRODUCE LOCALLY HEAVY
DOWNPOURS AND SMALL HAIL.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY

A FRONT MOVING THROUGH THE AREA WILL BRING THUNDERSTORMS ON
THURSDAY. THERE IS A LIMITED RISK OF SEVERE STORMS GENERALLY SOUTH
OF HIGHWAY 2...WITH THE RISK BEING DEPENDENT UPON SUFFICIENT
SUNSHINE OCCURRING TO CREATE WARMER TEMPERATURES AND SIGNIFICANT
INSTABILITY THURSDAY AFTERNOON. LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL IS ALSO A
CONCERN WITH ANY STORMS LATER THURSDAY AND THURSDAY NIGHT.

SEVERAL PERIODS OF MORE WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE
EXPECTED FOR THE TIME PERIOD FROM LATE FRIDAY NIGHT INTO SUNDAY
ACROSS MUCH OF THE NORTHLAND. WHILE IT IS STILL TOO EARLY TO
DETERMINE EXACT DETAILS ON WHAT AREAS MIGHT BE MOST AT RISK...THERE
APPEARS TO BE AT LEAST SOME SMALL RISK FOR SEVERE STORMS DURING THIS
TIME PERIOD. PERHAPS A BIGGER THREAT WILL BE THE RISK FOR WIDESPREAD
HEAVY RAINFALL AND POSSIBLY FLOODING OR FLASH FLOODING AS AN
EXTREMELY MOIST AIRMASS MOVES NORTHWARD INTO THE REGION.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SKYWARN SPOTTER ACTIVATION IS NOT EXPECTED TONIGHT.
HOWEVER...SKYWARN SPOTTERS MAY BE NEEDED THURSDAY AFTERNOON AND
