The National Weather Service says severe thunderstorms capable of producing large hail and damaging winds are expected to develop Sunday afternoon in southwest Minnesota and move northeast. The Storm Prediction Center has put parts of east central Minnesota under a moderate risk for severe storms Sunday afternoon and evening.

Meteorologist Paul Douglas says a "tornado can't be ruled out for the Twin Cities and suburbs later Sunday."

A tornado outbreak across the Midwest and Plains this weekend killed at least five people and injured dozens more, according to the Associated Press. The AP also reports about 75 percent of the town of Thurman, Iowa was destroyed by a possible tornado.
