MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A June storm has brought heavy rain and hail to parts of southern Minnesota.

The storm rolled across the south-central part of the state and the Twin Cities Wednesday morning.

The National Weather Service says the Hutchinson airfield measured nearly 3.25 inches of rain.

Other rainfall reports include 3.3 inches in Arlington, 2.83 inches in Carver and 2.28 inches near Green Isle.

Madison in far western Minnesota recorded a wind gust of 65 mph just before 6 a.m. But a Lac qui Parle County sheriff’s dispatcher says the only damage reported was to small tree branches.

Hail estimated at 1.75 inches fell near Wells and Freeborn in southern Minnesota.

A tornado watch is in effect for Fillmore, Houston and Mower counties in southeastern Minnesota until 9 p.m. Wednesday.
