Don't be surprised if thunder wakes you up tonight.

Thunderstorms are expected to move into western Minnesota around midnight Tuesday, and reach the Twin Cities early Wednesday morning, the National Weather Service says.

Some of the storms could be serious. The Storm Prediction Center says there's a "marginal risk of severe weather" in western Minnesota, meaning isolated severe storms are possible. The southwestern corner of the state has a slight risk of severe storms, meaning scattered severe storms are possible.

However, by the time the storms get to the Twin Cities, they aren't expected to be as severe.

Large hail and damaging winds are the main risks with this storm, the National Weather Service says, but notes heavy rainfall could also cause localized flooding.

Here's a look at how much rain we could get through Wednesday:

Storms Wednesday, too

The National Weather Service thinks the storms will clear out during the late afternoon Wednesday, but will redevelop in the afternoon across eastern Minnesota.

And there could be some more severe weather. The Storm Prediction Center shows the southeastern part of the state has a slight risk of severe storms, while the Twin Cities could see a marginal risk of severe weather.

This could mean a round of large hail and damaging winds hitting the metro area.
