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.

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.
