Starting To Pop. I still think the greatest potential for severe storms will be over far southeastern Minnesota and western Wisconsin into the evening hours - dynamics aloft are most ripe for hail and damaging winds in this area. A few strong storms are pushing into the MSP metro area, capable of pea-size hail and downpours capable of urban and small stream flooding. NWS Doppler at 3 pm. Here's the latest warning:
