A cool, breezy Tuesday is on tap for Minnesota and there is a chance for isolated severe storms in central and east-central Minnesota, and into west-central Wisconsin. 

That's where a marginal risk of severe weather is forecast by the Storm Prediction Center, with the National Weather Service in the Twin Cities saying conditions will allow for isolated hail and damaging winds.

Showers and storms will be isolated near and south of Interstate 94, but better chances of showers exist in northern Minnesota. The rain chances will be accompanied by temps in the 60s and low 70s and winds gusting up to 35 mph during the afternoon.

You can see the isolated nature the storms in the HRRR model's simulated radar, which shows you'll have to get a bit unlucky to get hit by a storm. The simulation below (GIF might not load in all browsers) shows storms developing in central and northeast Minnesota around 1-2 p.m. and then spreading southeast.

Beyond today, Wednesday looks awesome with temps in the low 70s and plenty of sun, with a slight bump in the temps Thursday before we settle into what should turn into a nice weekend.
