The Twin Cities is included in a tornado watch until 9 p.m. Sunday in parts of eastern/southeastern Minnesota and western Wisconsin. 

It's been a washout of a day in western Minnesota and ongoing pose the risk of intensifying as they move further east through Minnesota and then into Wisconsin. 

More details from the Storm Prediction Center: 

"A few supercell thunderstorms may develop this afternoon ahead of a mid level disturbance. Despite the widespread clouds, ample low level moisture and shear will provide a risk of a few tornadoes as well as locally damaging winds."

The 3 p.m. radar simulation from the HRRR model shows storms erupting in western Wisconsin between 4-5 p.m. and moving east. Remember, this is a simulation of what could happen, not what will happen (GIF may not load in all browsers).
