The Twin Cities metro area was among the regions impacted by strong thunderstorms on Friday afternoon and evening. Heavy rainfall around the rush hour resulted in quite a conundrum for commuters. Hail and gusty winds clobbered the north and downtown metro hard.
Monster storms traveled down the Minnesota River from near Montevideo to Mankato. On the north side of the river valley as much as four inches of rain may have fallen in the three hours from 430PM to 730PM.
We await the fate of Mother Nature for our Saturday.
