  • We’re getting quarter- to silver-dollar-size hail in Uptown.

    Quarter size hail at the St. Paul Campus (UMN) 20 minutes ago. What’s the outlook for the Twins game tonight?

  • Chris B. Critter

    Hey MPR weather team, I’ve got 2 questions for you:

    1) How much of a hindrance do you think the cloud cover will be for the development of severe weather today especially since it looks like it’s going to continue with the western MN storms continuing to fire? 2) Do you think that SPC’s 10% tornado area and their hatched 30% hail risk is still justified? Why or why not? Thanks!

    Paul, what are the chances of the Twins Game being played this evening?

  • Paul Huttner

    Tornado threat still exists, mainly south of metro. SPC has lowered risk to 5%. Craig Edwards says Twin game is a “go” for now.
