The National Weather Service in Duluth has issued an unusual advance warning for a summer storm system moving into the Northland, forecasting thunderstorms through Thursday.

No watches or warnings have yet been issued. But forecasters say the strength of this system, combined with a flow of warm and moist air from the Gulf of Mexico, will result in a potential for severe thunderstorms starting late today through Thursday night.

Severe storms will be possible through that period, but there will be a greater concentration of severe thunderstorms on Thursday, especially across eastern Minnesota and northwestern Wisconsin.

The storms could produce hail, strong winds and isolated tornadoes.

Conditions are expected to improve by Friday afternoon, and the weekend looks mostly sunny at this point.
