The strange thing about last nights storms were that the NWS did not issue any watches in advance of last nights action. I also don’t believe the Twin Cities were under any type of severe threat yesterday. Usually the NWS is over cautious. I think they forecasted “light showers”. I know that the heating and the humidity of the day caused these to bubble up, and trying to predict the weather is a crap shoot sometimes, and I am a fan of the NWS in what they do.

Essentially all day, we were in a “General Risk” category. This is the very bottom of the scale, below even “Marginal”

Even right after the tornado warnings were allowed to expire, the weather radio “Severe Weather Outlook” was saying that spotter activation would not be needed, even though there was an active formal weather net for another 10-15 minutes.

Definitely an usual night, that’s for sure.
