Storms drop heavy rain, large hail in parts of Minnesota


A storm system slowly moved through eastern Minnesota Monday afternoon and evening, bringing occasional heavy downpours and some significant hail, especially in western Twin Cities suburbs.

Reports of large hail have come in from Plymouth, Minnetonka and many other communities throughout the evening, according to the National Weather Service.

Plymouth is among the cities hit with hail a second time as the storm came through again.

The National Weather Service had issued severe thunderstorm warnings for parts of Minnesota through the evening, but those all expired by around 9:30 p.m.

In addition, a severe thunderstorm watch was in effect for part of Minnesota and Wisconsin for several hours. It was canceled about 9:40 p.m., and the NWS said no more severe weather was expected during the night.

It's expected to be dry and pleasant Tuesday and Wednesday in Minnesota, despite a stormy weather pattern in Wisconsin, Iowa and Illinois. The the chance for storms returns to the state Thursday, AccuWeather notes.
