"A few discrete to semi-discrete supercells should develop across west-central to central Minnesota through dusk. This activity will likely congeal into an organized cluster approaching east to south-central Minnesota in the late evening," says NOAA's Storm Prediction Center. 

The latest HRRR model shows supercells developing in western Minnesota around 7 p.m., with those cells expanding and moving east, possibly impacting the Twin Cities metro area between 10 p.m. and midnight.
