Tornado Watch for Metro Area Until 11 pm
Update: 6:50 pm. SPC has extended the tornado watch into the Twin Cities and most of east central MN until 11 pm. The severe cells (which have already dropped 2 confirmed tornadoes near Dawson and Louisburg, in Lac Qui Parle county) may hold together long enough - a few "supercell" storms may spin up tornadoes in the immediate Twin Cities metro area and St. Cloud. Stay alert and be ready to head to a safe shelter if threatening weather approaches.
