UPDATE 12:30 P.M.

A severe thunderstorm warning has now been issued for the west metro cities of Minnetonka, Waconia and Mound as a storm system advances on the Twin Cities.

The NWS says that half-dollar size hail is possible along with winds of up to 50 mph.

11:45 A.M.

Severe thunderstorms that moved through central and eastern Minnesota Monday morning have pushed into Wisconsin, setting the stage for redevelopment in areas south of the morning storms. 

As of 11:30 a.m., a supercell storm had developed south of Hutchinson and was moving east at 30 mph and capable of producing large hail. If it maintains its strength, it'll likely impact the metro area.

More storms are expected to develop, with the Storm Prediction Center placing all of south-central and southeast Minnesota in an Enhanced Risk for severe storms. 

Damaging winds will be the main threat, along with isolated large hail and the possibility of a tornado or two. 


The enhanced zone is just east-southeast of the immediate Twin Cities metro area, as storms are expected to grow into a line as the afternoon progresses and move east-southeast before exiting into Iowa and Wisconsin.
