Sunday storms could produce damaging winds, large hail, isolated tornadoes in Minnesota

Temps will soar into the 80s, close to 90 in many spots.

Overnight storms that raced through far southern Minnesota have moved out of the state, but another round of severe weather is possible Sunday afternoon and evening. 

The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has placed much of southern and southeast Minnesota in a slight risk for severe storms, with the Twin Cities and Duluth under a marginal risk.

Large hail and damaging winds are the main threats, although isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out. 

Whether the sun breaks through the cloud cover before this afternoon will play a large role in determining if southeast Minnesota will get another round of strong storms. If the sun comes out, the severe chances increase. 

Meanwhile, the 8 a.m. update from the SPC focuses on the Twin Cities and northeast Minnesota, saying there that "at least some severe risk appears probable from east-central/northeast Minnesota into northern Wisconsin" this afternoon and evening.

Damaging winds would be the main threat in places like the Twin Cities and Duluth, although a "few instances of large hail and perhaps a tornado" are possible, the SPC noted. 

We'll update the storm chances when the SPC releases its next update around 11:30 a.m.
