Big storms threaten eastern Minnesota Sunday morning.

The Twin Cities is included in a severe thunderstorm watch this morning as a line of storms is blasting southeastward through parts of Minnesota and Wisconsin. 

The line will either clip the east suburbs of the metro area, or develop further to the west and give the entire metro some robust morning thunderstorm action. None of the storms at the time of this post are severe.

Here's a look at the radar as of 7 a.m., showing a bowing line of storms racing to the southeast.

It's possible that more storms fire west of the metro later this afternoon. Those could also pose a threat of damaging winds and large hail. 

We'll have more on the Weather MN blog later today.
