High Wind Warning

Greetings and welcome!

It looks like we have some heavy weather coming in tonight through about Thursday.

There is a huge storm showing up on the models, and it has been consistent across the models for a few days. The storm is actually a northern and southern storm that will join, strengthen, and pass over Northern Minnesota.

At one point the models show a central pressure as low as 960MB, normally we don’t see many 972 storms. The guy on TV last night said it is as deep of a low as a cat 3 hurricane, but our hills and trees limit wind velocities.

We are still expecting rain and high winds. The NWS high wind warning is talking about some pretty heavy stuff. I went into a lot more detail on the other page.. http://northerndestinations.com/scindex/

Here are the latest warnings..
