Severe weather again poses a threat in parts of Minnesota and Wisconsin on Tuesday afternoon, and the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has upgraded the risk to "slight" (level 2 of 5 on the severe scale) in the Twin Cities, Rochester and far eastern parts of Minnesota into western Wisconsin. 

Storms are expected to redevelop Tuesday afternoon. 

"The main threats possible are damaging winds and tornadoes," said the Twin Cities office of the National Weather Service (NWS).
