Almost three-quarters of all tornadoes in Minnesota have occurred during the three months of May (15 percent), June (37 percent), and July (25 percent). Be ready to act quickly if a warning is issued or you suspect a tornado is approaching. "Have your weather plan in place and be ready to act on it", he said. "If the system gets unstable, it could produce a tornado". A tornado watch for Williamsburg County remains in effect until 11 p.m.

"The outdoor warning system in Dane County is fully automated", explained Dave Janda, the assistant director of Dane County Emergency Management Services. "The prime time for this in our viewing area will be between 5 to 7 p.m. on the early end until midnight or 1 a.m". It will be issued as a test of family preparedness in the home and for second shift workers.

Rain and thunderstorms are predicted to begin in the Meridian region around 1 a.m. Saturday, with the worst of the storm passing through between 6 a.m. and midnight Saturday.
