6 PM Today - Strong to Severe Storms Pushing Through Twin Cities? This is from NOAA's 3 km HRRR model, which updates hourly and (consistently) shows a cluster or possible squall line of storms moving through by late afternoon and evening. Although dew points have dropped into the low and mid 60s behind yesterday's gusty cool front, there is still enough low-level moisture, instability and wind shear available for strong to severe storms. Although an isolated tornado can't be ruled out the primary risk is straight-line winds and large hail.
