A severe thunderstorm watch has been issued for an area of southeastern Minnesota.
The National Weather Service says that a storm system passing through Minnesota into Wisconsin has the potential to bring "damaging wind gusts and large hail," while some tornadoes are also possible.
The area under the watch area till 9 p.m. includes Rochester and Mankato, though it appears as though the Twin Cities metro will miss the worst of it.
At the very least, the Twin Cities and much of Minnesota is getting its first serious rainfall in weeks.
The NWS says that by the end of the day, the Twin Cities can expect to have received as much as 0.65 inches of rainfall, while parts of northern Minnesota could get more than an inch.
