Tornado/Straight-Line Wind Threat: North Metro Hardest Hit

8:23 pm. Bow Echo - Damaging Straight Line Wind Threat. In addition to a tornado spotted at Rogers shortly after 8 pm Doppler shows a horse-shoe-shaped squall line of severe storms "bowing" east at 40-50 mph. Straight-line winds may top 70-90 mph, capable of significant damage, especially north metro. The greatest risk will be from near Andover, Anoka and Blaine to Shoreview, White Bear Lake and North St. Paul. I believe the NORTH METRO WILL SEE THE WORST OF THIS, with wind damage likely, straight-line, and possible embedded tornadoes as well. Take cover immediately!
