Campers Advised to Take Precautions with Severe Weather Expected Overnight

For those who will be heading out on camping trips over the weekend, the National Weather Service is advising that those people be aware of the potential for significant storms that are expected to be rolling through the state early Saturday morning.

Many of the models from the National Weather Service indicate a line of strong storms with tornado potential and the likelihood of wind gusts in the 50 mile per hour and above range moving from the northwest portion of the state, which is already under severe weather warnings, heading south and east overnight.

The expectation is that there are going to be a line storms along a line that extends through most Minnesota – from Marshall to north of Duluth – that will impact much of the state.

Depending on where campers will be, the storms are expected to be along a line from Willmar to the Brainerd lakes area at approximately 1 a.m., with Wright County expected to be on the front line of the storm at approximately 3 a.m.

Given the severity of the winds and the heavy amounts of rain that are projected to be associated with the front end of the storm, those who will be in remote locations are strongly urged to be prepared to take shelter in the event the storms live up to the expectations that models are indicating.
