... Severe thunderstorms expected to rapidly develop and expand in
coverage through 4 PM...

Strong to severe thunderstorms are expected to rapidly develop
ahead of a cold front located from near Lake of The Woods... to

Storms are expected to develop across areas from International
Falls and Voyageurs National Park... southward to Bigfork... Grand
Rapids... Walker... the Brainerd lakes region... Lake Mille lacs
and Big Sandy Lake.

Any storms that develop are expected to rapidly reach severe
levels with threats of very large hail up to the size of
baseballs... damaging wind gusts... and perhaps a tornado or two

Now is the time to make a plan to keep yourself safe if severe
storms affect your location later this afternoon. Have a safe
place in mind... and a plan to communicate with your family and
friends.
