The Twin Cities is in a severe thunderstorm watch until midnight, with strong winds, hail, and even tornadoes possible.
The National Weather Service says that wind gusts of up to 70 mph and ping-pong sized hail is possible with the storm, as well as some isolated twisters.
The watch area is large, covering a wide area of southeastern Minnesota and western Wisconsin, but judging by radar at 7 p.m., it looks like the Twin Cities is in line to get hit.
"Storms should continue to intensify initially across eastern/southern Minnesota early this evening. While there is some uncertainty regarding the overall coverage/likelihood of severe storms this evening, the environment supports the possibility of isolated large hail, locally damaging winds and perhaps a tornado," the Storm Prediction Center says.
The wider storm system could potentially bring heavy rainfall and flooding in southern Minnesota, particularly along and south of Interstate 90.
