   Mesoscale Discussion 0733
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   1054 AM CDT Thu May 12 2022

   Areas affected...central Minnesota into northwest Wisconsin

   Concerning...Severe potential...Watch possible 

   Valid 121554Z - 121830Z

   Probability of Watch Issuance...60 percent

   SUMMARY...A complex of storms may gain strength as it moves across
   central Minnesota and into northwest Wisconsin. Trends are being
   monitored for intensification.

   DISCUSSION...Recent trends have show intensification of a broken
   line of storms over central MN, well north of the warm front
   currently. A severe gust was recently measured, despite temperatures
   in the 50s F.

   Substantial elevated instability exists north of the boundary, which
   is forecast to gradually mix northward today. Southerly winds from
   surface to 850 mb will also gradually increase throughout the day as
   the line of storms intercepts a more favorable air mass. As such, a
   watch for severe gusts and marginal hail may be required in the next
   1-2 hours.
