Storms could pack a little bit of a punch with afternoon redevelopment from the Twin Cities into southern Minnesota on Sunday. 

The best ingredients for severe storms is well to the southeast of Minnesota, but there remains a marginal-to-slight risk of severe weather in parts of the state, including the Twin Cities.

"It won't be a total washout today, but expect periodic showers & storms into this evening. A few storms could be severe. While we look to get more rain than most areas in MN have seen in weeks, it won't be enough to lessen the worsening drought conditions," explains the National Weather Service.

Here's a look at the simulated future radar from the HRRR model guidance, which shows strong storms redeveloping near and south of the Twin Cities around between 3-6 p.m.

The main severe threats would be large hail and damaging winds, though an isolated tornado can't be ruled out. The best chance for hail, high winds and tornadoes is further south and east in Iowa and Illinois.
