It was a beautiful sight that possibly momentarily got people's minds off all the street flooding that was reported in the southern Twin Cities as strong thunderstorms rolled through.

Weather officials warned "very heavy rain" could cause localized minor flooding in Carver, Dakota, Hennepin and Scott counties, and the National Weather Service has issued a flash flood warning for the area until 8:15 p.m. (For the latest weather alerts, click here.)

Shakopee and Savage saw 2 inches of rain within about 40 minutes, meteorologist Paul Douglas tweeted, and the area could see another 2 inches of rain by later Tuesday night as thunderstorms continue to develop, the National Weather Service says.

Hunter Fricke tweeted several photos of the street flooding in Savage Tuesday evening, describing his neighborhood as a "swimming pool."

Meanwhile in Lauderdale, the National Weather Service says golf ball-sized hail and 60 mph wind gusts were reported.

Severe weather is also affecting central Minnesota, where weather officials have issued severe thunderstorm warnings until 7 p.m. (Check the latest weather alerts here.)
