"Thunderstorms are expected to increase in intensity and coverage amid the very unstable airmass over the region this afternoon. Environmental conditions support the potential for supercells capable of all severe hazards, including very hail and tornadoes," the National Weather Service says. 

Strong tornadoes are possible. 

The latest HRRR model shows storms blowing up in the watch box around 3-4 p.m. pushing northeast, possibly through the Twin Cities around sunset.
