However, the threat of strong to severe thunderstorms could continue as a line of storms will continue to develop along a cold front.

Strong thunderstorms are expected to develop over the region in the afternoon, bringing with them heavy rain and the possibility for severe wind gusts. It's also how many tornadoes there were in the state past year, according to the National Weather Service.

Here in Emporia, we have a chance of a rain-snow mix late Saturday afternoon into evening along with some freezing drizzle and snow after sunset.

An ugly weekend weather forecast also could be a risky one, with 2-4 inches of rainfall Saturday bringing flooding potential and severe storms possible.

As of 9:12 a.m. this morning, the Red Flag Warning was in effect until 8 p.m. for gusty winds and low relative humidity. Areas to its north and west will see up to 1 inch, the weather service said.

A tornado tore through Mike Sulzer's farm near Monroe last June, damaging just about every building on the property and several other homes nearby. The squall line is expected to produce locally heavy rainfall of 1 to 2 inches, with locally heavier amounts, and winds of 30-40 miles per hour.

That's up from the slight risk that forecasters predicted Saturday. The overnight low is expected to be in the 30s.

A Winter Storm Watch is in effect from Friday afternoon to Saturday evening for most of the southern two-thirds of Minnesota, roughly south of a line from Fergus Falls to Brainerd to Hinckley.

The tornado watch covers areas south of Interstate 64 and west of Interstate 95, including metro Richmond, South Hill, Famville, Dinwiddie, Goochland, Crewe and Lawrenceville.
