A severe thunderstorm watch has been issued across central and northern Minnesota and storms will be capable of producing destructive hail, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes.
Storms have already developed in Minnesota, with the Storm Prediction Center saying an "intense supercell over northwest Minnesota may become a long-track, cyclic giant hail producing storm across north-central Minnesota."
As of 6:05 p.m., that supercell was tornado-warned in Itasca, Cass and Beltrami counties. The tornado was radar-indicated 21 miles east of Bemidji and moving southeast at 35 mph.
Unfortunately, the Duluth radar is down and not giving the best look at the storm. Here's what it looked like from the Grand Forks radar.
"Additional storms are expected along a front in south-central to southeast North Dakota, with further development farther east towards central Minnesota through the evening," the SPC said.
Scattered large hail of 2-4 inches in diameter are likely with the most intense storms, along with damaging winds up to 80 mph. A tornado or two is also possible.
