Chance of scattered showers and t-storms

It was a wild weather ride this Sunday morning.

Thunderstorms with strong winds, heavy rain and hail moved across much of southern and central Minnesota and on into Wisconsin.

Here’s how it looked as the thunderstorms moved through St. Paul Sunday morning:

There were dozens of severe weather reports this morning.

A listing of severe weather reports has also been posted on the MPR news live weather blog.

About 132,000 Minnesotans lost power due to the severe weather.

Scattered thunderstorms could redevelop over Minnesota and Wisconsin this Sunday afternoon and evening.

The Storm Prediction Center of the National Weather Service shows a marginal risk of severe weather Sunday afternoon and Sunday night for much of southern and central Minnesota and western Wisconsin:
