CHANHASSEN, Minn. (AP) — A tornado watch is out until 9 p.m. across Minnesota’s midsection as intense thunderstorms pop up across the area.

The National Weather Service issued a tornado warning after radar indicated a storm capable of producing a tornado north of Willmar in west-central Minnesota about 5:15 p.m., but there were no immediate reports of a touchdown.

The weather service also issued a tornado warning for Pine County in east-central Minnesota and Burnett County in northwestern Wisconsin about 6:30 p.m. after trained spotters saw a rotating wall cloud.

A spotter saw a funnel cloud near Morris about 4:15 p.m., but no touchdown.

Spotters also reported 3-inch hail near New London and 2.5-inch hail near Morris. There were other reports of large hail and high winds as well.
