A heavy storm watch was issued for a third of Minnesota as strong thunderstorms were developed and will now move around the area.
Heavy thunderstorm warnings were issued in southwest Minnesota before the watch was issued at 3:15 p.m. and the watch will remain in force until 8 pm. T
The clock does not include the metro area 7 counties, but is directly to the south of the Twinning of Cities area.
Storms that reach tough levels will be able to produce winds of 70 mph and large large isolated stones to 1.5 inches in diameter. A tornado or two cannot be excluded, the National Weather Service says.
The radar as at 3:45 p.m. which is in the image at the top of the story, but this is how the HRRR (GIF can't load them in all browsers) imagines the storms playing the rest of the day early in Tuesday. This is a simulation, so it does not reflect exactly what will return.
Storms will be able to produce lightning and very heavy rainfall often could flood, even even floods. A flood watch watch is in place throughout the rest of the day for a large part of southern Minnesota where 2-5 inches of rain has fallen from Sunday morning.
