Previous year the state saw its earliest tornadoes ever on March 6 when three twisters touched down near Bricelyn in Faribault County, Zimmerman in Sherburne County and Clarks Grove in Freeborn County.

Aside from wind and tornado damage, meteorologists are also watching for large rain and flooding issues, Owen said.
