    Although severe thunderstorms may survive to reach Minneapolis, severe weather is possible Friday through Saturday in North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota, AccuWeather.com meteorologists said.

    A storm system in the Canadian Prairies will drag a cold front into a zone of hot and humid air, setting the stage for possible severe storms, AccuWeather.com Senior Expert Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said.

    "The greatest threats are damaging wind gusts and large hail," Sosnowski said. "There is a remote chance of other storms producing a tornado."

    The severe threat will be focused from Aberdeen, S.D., to northwestern Minnesota on Friday, AccuWeather.com Senior Meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski said.

    Severe storms are possible Saturday afternoon and evening north of Interstate 94, especially across northwest North Dakota, Pydynowski said.

    Another round of thunderstorms - some locally heavy - may occur on Sunday in northern Minnesota and North Dakota followed by an increase of heat and humidity early next week, Pydynowski said.
