The visible satellite loop from early Tuesday showed the scattered showers that pushed through the Twin Cities metro.
Take a look at this! Hurricane Matthew made a direct hit with a buoy located in the Caribbean and survived! Note the relation between the intense wind gusts and the central pressure dropping significantly as Matthew passed over the buoy.

...SUMMARY... ISOLATED STRONG TO SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ARE FORECAST FROM WESTERN PORTIONS OF OKLAHOMA NORTHEASTWARD THROUGH KANSAS AND INTO CENTRAL IOWA THURSDAY AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING. ...SYNOPSIS... A MID-LEVEL SPEED MAX INITIALLY OVER THE CENTRAL ROCKIES WILL MOVE INTO EASTERN NEB BY EARLY EVENING AND SUBSEQUENTLY TO THE WESTERN GREAT LAKES BY DAYBREAK FRIDAY. A COLD FRONT OVER PARTS OF THE CENTRAL PLAINS AND MIDWEST WILL BEGIN TO PUSH SOUTHWARD LATE IN THE PERIOD. A WEAK SURFACE WAVE IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP NORTHEASTWARD ALONG THE FRONT FROM CENTRAL KS INTO NORTHERN WI. ...NWRN OK AND KS INTO NWRN MO AND CNTRL IA... THE INFLUENCE OF A SURFACE RIDGE WILL BECOME INCREASINGLY PROMINENT WITH TIME ACROSS THE APPALACHIANS INTO THE ARKLATEX. AS A RESULT...A PLUME OF RICHER MOISTURE WILL BECOME INCREASINGLY SHUNTED WESTWARD/NORTHWESTWARD ACROSS PARTS OF THE SOUTHERN-CENTRAL PLAINS AND INTO THE MIDWEST NEAR A FRONT. MODEL GUIDANCE SHOWS A NARROWING CORRIDOR OF MID 60S DEG F DEWPOINTS BUT APPRECIABLE HEATING THROUGH THE EARLY-MID AFTERNOON WILL CONTRIBUTE TO MODERATE BUOYANCY. AS THE MID-LEVEL DISTURBANCE SHEARS NORTHEASTWARD ACROSS THE CENTRAL PLAINS...THE STRONGEST FLOW WILL TEND TO BE LOCATED NORTHWEST OF THE WARM SECTOR ACROSS OK INTO PARTS OF KS. NONETHELESS...EFFECTIVE SHEAR RANGING FROM 40-KT OVER IA INTO THE MO VALLEY AND 30-KT OVER WESTERN OK WILL LIKELY PROVE SUFFICIENT FOR AN ORGANIZED BAND OR TWO OF STORMS TO DEVELOP. AN INITIAL RISK FOR SEVERE HAIL MAY DEVELOP WITH THE STRONGER UPDRAFTS BEFORE UPSCALE GROWTH OCCURS WITH THE SEVERE RISK TRANSITIONING TO GUSTY OUTFLOW WINDS.
